Draft European Charter of Regional Self-Government (5 June 1997)

With the backing of the Committee of the Regions of the European Union, the Council of Europe's Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of Europe (CLRAE) draws up a draft ‘European Charter of Regional Self-Government' along the lines of the ‘European Charter of Local Self-Government'. Given that these two Charters are complementary in the application of the principle of subsidiarity for the benefit of regional and local authorities, the CLRAE directs its efforts towards this Charter eventually securing the status of European treaty as does the European Charter of Local Self-Government. However, points of contention between the member States of the Council of Europe stand in the way of its being signed.
