Subsidiarity is a main principle in the EU

Heiner Studer, President of the ECPM Advisory Council, former Swiss MP and EVP party leader, explains in this video the importance of the ECPM election Manifesto (download it here). He underlines that subsidiarity is an important christian-democratic principle. In its election Manifesto, ECPM explicitly mentions the principle of subsidiarity:

"A revaluation of subsidiarity based on the relational paradigm is necessary. Subsidiarity means that political decisions and their execution should in principle take place at the level to which people relate to and therefore feel empowered towards the decision-making process. Due to the lack of subsidiarity many feel unrelated and therefore disempowered. We need an EU that understands this."
