Legitimacy Intermediation in the Multilevel European Polity and Its Collapse in the Euro Crisis

  • Fritz W. Scharpf


European integration has created a multilevel polity in which governing powers are exercised at the European, national, subnational and local levels. But whereas in EU member states there is generally a clear hierarchical relationship in which the political and legal bases of legitimate authority at the national level dominate those at the regional and local levels, the relationship between the EU and its member states is much more ambivalent.
