The literature remains divided about whether, and if so how and to what extent, New Modes of Governance enjoy normative legitimacy and even confer it to the EU. This paper lays out some of the central normative concerns and indicates some of the relevant findings.The aim is neither to provide a comprehensive overview of the normative and empirical literatures, nor to criticize them. Instead, these reflections only sketch one framework for how such work may later move forward.
