Continuity without undue constraint is as difficult as openness that has a purpose. Our work over the course of the roundtable discussion is to try and understand how well the ideas associated with subsidiarity maintain that inherent tendency.

This roundtable, hosted by Milton Friesen, is by invitation only. Expressions of interest may be made by contacting Milton.

Key questions:

  • What is subsidiarity? What role have these ideas played in Canada?
  • Discussion 1: How does subsidiarity play out across the political spectrum?
  • Discussion 2: Is subsidiarity upstream or downstream of culture? Does it rise and fall with political fortunes?
  • Discussion 3: How would subsidiarity impact various important policy domains? Are there examples or jurisdictions that we could learn from in answering these questions?
