This chapter examines the normative criteria for governmental legitimacy in international law, particularly with respect to the legitimacy of government in exile. It explains the predominant view in legal literature that a government in exile is the representative organ of the international legal person state and the depository of its sovereignty. It explains the criteria required in order for an authority in exile to qualify as a government in international law.
