Subsidiarity and European integration. Citizens and institutions and where to go from here? Martin
The introductory thesis of the text on the subsidiarity relationship and European Union citizens is that subsidiarity is supposed to assist both the decision-making process at a level most relevant to the citizen, as well as contribute to the preservation and protection of the cultural and value diversity of the European population. For the individual this means that the preservation of own identity, anchored in the local circumstances of the native region, is just as important as the possibility of effective participation in decision-making.
