Two-Level Legitimacy: Changing Approaches to EU Treaty Ratification

Since 2011, there have been 135 treaty ratification processes played out in EU member states.
On April 2, 2014Dr. Dermot Hodson, Senior Lecturer of Political Economy at Birkbeck College, discusses how ratification is achieved through referendum, constitutional review, and parliament voting.
He argues that the ratification procedure is becoming more difficult and trust in the EU and national political systems is one of many determining factors in achieving a sense of two-level legitimacy.
