Abstract:

The study examines the defense requirements of the states of Austria and Switzerland. An analysis of potential threats to the neutrality of each state focuses on hostile military efforts and how best to use the neutral countrys social, economic, political and geographical characteristics to preserve the neutrality and sovereignty of each state. The authors proceed from the analysis of potential dangers to a discussion of the defense policy of each state. This discussion includes the structuring of forces as well as their possible deployment to preserve the integrity of the state. Both countries militia policies and personnel are discussed in detail.
