On 17 November the conference 'Sharing power in Europe. Striking the right balance between EU and member state action' was held in The Hague. The conference was co-hosted by the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the UK EU-presidency in collaboration with the Clingendael Institute and the Royal Institute of International Affairs 'Chatham House'.

The conference, which was meant to contribute to the wider debate on the future of the European integration, brought together representatives from governments, parliaments, the EU's institutions, academia, business and civil society from across the member states and candidate countries. The aim of the meeting was to look at how the principle of subsidiarity is currently applied, identify positive and negative aspects of the present practice, and present recommendations as to the improvement of the application of this principle.
