This essay is a configurative idiographic case study on the EU-commission Prodi’s views on the question of legitimacy as it pertains to the EU in the commissions white paper on governance. Further, it also tries to square the Prodi commissions view with the strategies for legitimation that has been previously presented by Eriksen & Fossum (2004). This essay explores the framework of the theories of legitimacy that has been Established by Beetham (2013) and Zaum (2013).
The essay approaches the question of the Prodi commission’s view on legitimacy through an idea analysis focusing on the dimensions of input- and institional legitimacy. Comparing the commission’s views on legitimacy as with Eriksen & Fossums' strategies of legitimation is done by an ideal type analysis.
The Essay concludes that the Prodi commissions views on legitimacy weren’t fully developed, yet seemed to favour more of a stakeholder perspective on input legitimacy and that the commission held that the EU’s institutional legitimacy was broad In the question regarding legitimation strategies I conclude that the commissions view is most closely aligned with the post-national federation strategy.
