Switzerland

As of 2016, Switzerland is represented in ELEC by the Association La Suisse en Europe (ASE), following in the footsteps of ELEC Suisse which was formally dissolved at the end of 2015 and the rights and obligations of which were taken up by ASE with more than 100 members as of that day. The transition was approved by ELEC’s General Council at its December 2015 meeting.  ASE’s goals and aspirations are very much  in line with ELEC. The Association is engaged in improving knowledge and information on the EU, much distorted in Switzerland, and to fight for good and open relations with the Union in the understanding that Switzerland firmly forms part of Europe and European Integration while taking into account her particular political institutions of direct democracy which obliged to pursue a separate road of bilateral agreements outside the EEA and outside of EU Membership so far. ​
