Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademic


This paper provides a legal and empirical analysis of certain aspects of the european union’s early warning system for the principle of subsidiarity. It discusses the admissibility criteria for opinions from national parliaments against eu legislative proposals; it considers which principles national parliaments actually apply in these opinions in practice; and it develops practical legal techniques on how to incorporate principles other than subsidiarity in such opinions.
