Overview

Legitimating the European Union: Aspirations, Inputs and Performance by J. Mather

This is a study in EU legitimacy from the perspective of EU citizens. Mather argues that legitimacy is empirical: 'legitimacy only exists if people feel that it does' and that the EU is a unique and dynamic institution, hence legitimating factors are also evolutionary.
