There is a heated debate underway on the legitimacy of global activists, a war of words (and sometimes stones and teargas) that is rarely examined from top to bottom. This latest book by Canadian commentator Van Rooy scrutinizes the new legitimacy rules, arguing that they have real impact on how our world is governed. In dissecting representation, rights, experience, expertise, moral authority and other evolving rules of legitimation, Van Rooy points to her own proposals for global supplementary democracy.

'a well structured examination of the ways in which the 'legitimacy' debate is unfolding. The book has a logical and expository structure, the arguments are tightly managed in clear, jargon-free language, and they are backed by solid examples and quotes. [...] excellent and strategically useful volume.' - Development In Practice



'Clear, concise, and well-written...Overall, this is an excellent book and well worth reading.' - Hall Gardner, The European Legacy
