The documents contained in volume 22 (1961-1963) cover seven main topics: European integration and Switzerland's attempts to be associated to it; economic and technical cooperation with developing countries; economic and financial relations including taxations and bank secrecy; economic policy and the status of foreign workers which needed redefining; security issues in a context defined by the strained relations between Moscow and Washington and the Cuban Crisis; good offices following the resolving of the French-Algerian conflict and humanitarian aid; cooperation with international organisations such as the UN and the OECD.
