This volume develops an agenda for systematic and comparative research on legitimacy in global governance. It argues for a sociological approach to legitimacy. It moves beyond the traditional focus on states as the principal audience for legitimacy in global governance and considers a full spectrum of actors. It advocates a comparative approach across institutions, issue areas, countries, societal groups, and time. The volume offers the most comprehensive treatment so far of the sociological legitimacy of global governance, covering sources, processes, and consequences.
