Presentation at OECD
On 19 March 2021, Professor Jan Aart Scholte addressed a meeting of the OECD Public Governance Committee on the subject of 'Reinforcing Democracy: 21st Century Governance Challenges'.
The OECD, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, is an international organization that works, together with governments, policy makers and citizens, on establishing evidence-based international standards and finding solutions to a range of social, economic and environmental challenges.
Drawing upon his research with the Legitimacy in Global Governance programme (https://www.statsvet.su.se/leggov), Jan's talk especially discussed gaps between the legitimacy beliefs of elites and general citizens toward national, regional and global governance arrangements.
