Abstract

Ever since Maastricht, the democratic legitimacy of the EU has been a key concern of policy makers, citizens and academics alike. In the past decade the Greek economic crisis and the Brexit referendum have raised the spectre of fragmentation and political disintegration. Many commentators fear the promise of the EU as a possible model for legitimate governance beyond the nation state now lies in tatters. The work collected in this book has been at the forefront in exploring what has come to be known as ‘the normative turn in EU studies’. Drawing on the republican idea of mixed government, the authors propose a novel solution to the EU’s democratic legitimacy as an association of democratic states. So conceived, the EU operates as an inter-national demoi-cracy rather than a supra-national demos-cracy, in which the member states jointly govern their interactions in mutually respectful and non-dominating ways.
