On the Legitimacy of International Institutions


Anthony D'Amato


Northwestern University - School of Law

January 2007

Northwestern Public Law Research Paper No. 06-35

Abstract:     
The concept of legitimacy can occupy a useful space in international law. For example, a de facto government is the legitimate government compared to a de jure government which is the lawful government. International customary law is legitimate by definition. But international institutions, although lawful, are less legitimate because their interests are exclusive - even though they purport to serve inclusive interests.
