Abstract: What are the appropriate criteria for assessing the legitimacy of the EU? This article uses data from the Eurobarometer to adjudicate between rival perspectives on EU legitimacy. The findings strengthen the case for holding the EU to the same liberal-democratic standard of legitimacy that is applied to political authority in the nation-state.
