City- State – Utopia or Realistic Model?

Theorists and practitioners in the debate

What makes the city state special? How does it play off comparative advantages such as balance of power, urbanity and neutrality against the inherent vulnerability of foreign dependency, domestic economic isolation and spatial constriction? Can the city-state concept be implemented as a possible third way for Switzerland? The authors examine these questions theoretically and empirically from the perspectives of politics, economics, sociology and security. They outline food for thought and alternative solutions and provide guidance in the current debate on Switzerland’s positioning.
