How do Europe’s citizens think of life elsewhere on the continent?
The results? Well, poor Greece.
A survey (pdf) by a research group based at the University of Geneva asked citizens from nine European nations to rate living conditions in their home country and those in neighboring countries on a scale of one to 10.
Interestingly, the one country that comes out top the most is not even a member of the European Union. Switzerland has long built up a reputation as a tax haven and one of the world’s wealthiest nations (to say nothing of its chocolate, cheese, and mountains). It also has restrictive refugee policies, which came under criticism from the UN last year.
