(p.163) 8 Europeans and the Nation State
Public Opinion and Internationalized Governance

Guido Martinotti

Sonia Stefanizzi

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the relationship between public perceptions of government legitimacy (or satisfaction with democratic performance) at the national level and those at the supranational level, namely support for the European Community. The results are complex and not straightforward, and reveal a wide range of historical and contextual factors. From this perspective, the legitimacy of internationalized governance depends as much on what happens within nation states as on what happens between them.

Keywords:   European Community, government legitimacy, public opinion
