Cameron pushing for diverse forms of cooperation

The British prime minister's demands for EU reforms open up new opportunities for non-members like Switzerland, writes the centre-left daily Tages-Anzeiger: "Cameron's proposals for lowering immigration are confined to measures against so-called benefit tourism. They entail the demand that freedom of movement should not automatically give migrants access to the social welfare system of another country - something that many European capitals endorse. … What Cameron outlined yesterday is not a horror vision of Europe. On the contrary, it is the image of an EU that breaks with the logic of an ever tighter Union and in view of the constant crises it faces finds new and diverse forms of cooperation. … For countries like the UK the EU will always be an economic project; for the EU core state it is also a commitment to certain ideals. And for countries like Switzerland that don't want to join, the prospect of flexible solutions - and a third way - is increasing."
