This interdisciplinary collection considers aspects of legitimacy and trust that have been neglected in previous studies. With contributions from across the EU, the book focuses on conceptions of legitimacy linked to criminal law norms, criminalisation and sanctioning; on EU legal and policy aspects of the phenomenon; and on specific court-related issues of legitimacy and trust. The study highlights the importance of trust in legal institutions of modern democracies and suggests ideas for future research in this area to challenge ways of thinking about legitimacy.
