The article investigates the diffusion of the principle of subsidiarity to select regional integration regimes in Latin America (Mercosur, Andean Community) and Africa (ECOWAS, EAC, SADC). It finds that even in contexts in which the institutional design of a regional integration regime appears to have been inspired by the EU blueprint, subsidiarity does either not make an appearance at all or is being defined and used in ways different from that prevalent in Europe.
