Governmental Illegitimacy in International Law

Brad R. Roth

Oxford University Press

This concluding chapter summarizes the current state of the positive international law of governmental illegitimacy, arguing that the absence of a meaningful ‘democratic entitlement’ in the international system ought not to be lamented. Though superficially attractive, assertions of new democratic legitimism pose serious dangers to international peace and security and democracy itself.
