Jakovcic: Without subsidiarity, no democracy in south-eastern Europe

 

Ivan Jakovcic (President of the region of Istria) drew attention to the significance of subsidiarity for the Balkans, adding that subsidiarity was the key to European democracy and that without it, there could be no democracy in south-eastern Europe. Europe did not begin in St. Pölten, in Strasbourg or in Munich, but also in Sarajevo, Ljubljana and Zagreb. Jakovcic presented the Euro region of Istria as exemplary with regard to the resolution of minority problems, and addressed in this connection the treatment of the Italian ethnic minority in particular. Regionalisation in the rest of south-eastern Europe however continued to be unsatisfactory; in particular, Serbia, Macedonia and Bulgaria showed inadequacies. In this context, Jakovcic expected to see the EU propose solutions, and urged the creation of an Adriatic Euro region. For south-eastern Europe in particular, decentralisation and regionalisation meant not only growth and prosperity, but also and above all peace and security.
