Legitimation Strategies of Regional Organizations (LegRO)

Dataset | GESIS, Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences

  • Description

    In an era of increasing political challenges to global and regional organizations, it is crucial to understand how they claim legitimacy and how successful they are in this respect. Yet, we know surprisingly little about the sources and consequences of legitimation in most regional organizations worldwide. In this project, we thus map the legitimation strategies of a sample of 28 organizations between 1980 and 2019.
