Thomas Banchoff - Legitimacy and the European Union. PDF

PDF Since Maastricht, the problem of EU legitimacy has emerged as a growing concern. This text studies the contours of the problem, integrating existing work on the democratic deficit with emergent literature on the EU as a new kind of polity. It argues that existing approaches to the legitimacy crisis are rooted in statist categories that poorly fit EU reality. The contributors show that the EU is increasingly emerging as a legitimate framework for political contestation in Europe and that the interaction of identities in Europe - regional, national and European - has reinforced EU legitimacy.
