Why, how, and with what consequences do global governance institutions gain, sustain and lose legitimacy? These issues are at the heart of LegGov – a six-year research program in Stockholm, Lund, and Gothenburg universities.



The project seeks to enhance the understanding of long- and short-term variations in political trust in contemporary established democracies. It involves political demand (citizens), political supply (political actors) and the societal and political context. The research is conducted at the University of Tampere and Åbo Akademi University.
