The notion of the subsidiarity principle is based on matters of distribution of powers between different levels of authority. Within the European Union the idea of subsidiarity aims to bring the decision-making process as close to the citizens as possible and initially was incorporated into the Treaties to balance the Union’s broaden competence.
