    Claimed Legitimacy: Appreciating the Diversity of Regional Organisations

    Regional organisations (ROs) are key actors in global and regional governance, and their authority has continuously grown in all world regions. In the face of growing contestation and politicization, these ROs increasingly justify their right to rule. The GIGA Focus Global analyses their legitimation patterns.

    Sources and Consequences of Legitimation Strategies of Regional Organizations (LegRO)

    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 around the world. In this project we thus map the legitimation strategies of a sample of 30 organizations and conduct qualitative comparative case studies on major organizations in the Global South.
