Abstract

This paper tries to review the relation between the MLG and Subsidiarity Principle as seen in the context of the debate over White Paper of Committee of the Region (CoR). First of all, the subsidiarity principle is part of the multilevel governance. Secondly, according to the subsidiarity principle, the political arenas could easily stay interconnected rather than nested, as stated by a major thesis of the multilevel governance paradigm. Finally, subsidiarity considered through the Lisbon Treaty seems to allow CoR become a genuine community institution, which seems to be a paradox considering that it has been conceived to prevent community institutions from blocking the competences of the Member States.
