Conference "Subsidiarity as a building principle of the European Union" from 15 to 16 November 2018 in Bregenz

The principle of subsidiarity is a crucial cornerstone of our common Europe. This means that the European Union has to work on solutions for big challenges – such as migration, security and climate change. At the same time, the EU has to take a step back when it comes to questions where member states or regions are in a better position to take decisions. A consistent application of this principle would allow to bring the European Union closer to its citizens and improve their trust in the EU.

Within the framework of the Presidency of the Council of the European Union, Austria wants to seize this occasion and discuss, together with representatives from politics, experts and citizens, how a common understanding of the term "subsidiarity" can be found and how this principle can be applied consistently.
