Preview

The analysis of public attitudes towards NATO, the EC, and the UN throws light on two key questions concerning public opinion and internationalized governance: first, whether public support for an agency of internationalized governance can withstand fundamental contextual change, amounting even to changes in the very mission of the agency; second, whether there exists a single continuum of internationalized governance, corresponding to the degree of authority transferred to the agency, or whether attitudes and orientations are multi dimensional, depending on the issues involved. This chapter examines whether attitudes towards NATO, the EC, and the UN belong to one and the same dimension of attitudes towards internationalized governance, or represent distinct and separate dimensions.
