The first chapter introduces the topic of the book and provides an overview on the debate about the EU’s legitimacy. It situates the EU in the context of other international institutions and argues that the EU is a most developed international regime that provides many insightful lessons for how international governance arrangements can be justified. It is also most interesting for learning about the delicate trade off between domestic democracy and international cooperation. The chapter finally introduces the structure of the book and briefly describes the content of the following chapters.
