Clearly, this line of argument has a lot of prima facie plausibility, and in the absence of more fine-grained empirical research on the formation of citizen attitudes towards the EU, it cannot be easily dismissed. Yet on the other hand, the persuasiveness of legitimacy relationships as parts of an argumentative strategy to build up empirical support for the EU should also not be underestimated. After all, part of the difficulty in generating public interest in the EU originates from the complexity and lack of transparency of its current institutional structure.
Instead, it is to be expected that different forms of legitimacy relationships prevail at different times, in different places, or among different subgroups of the population. This picture, in any case, is suggested by studies on the relationship between European and national identities, a topic that has attracted greater research interest than legitimacy relationships in a strict sense. Evidence obtained by various techniques – survey research,14 studies of elite discourses,15 as well as small group experiments16 – all show that while there is no necessary contradiction between a person’s attachment to his/her nation state and to the EU, the relationship between national and European identities can take many forms.
