Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book titled NGO Involvement in International Governance and Policy contains the table of contents and the introduction. The book addresses the theme of the legitimacy of the involvement of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in global governance and policy. Internationally operating NGOs are increasingly involved in international governance and policy-making. The main objective and the corresponding theme of NGO legitimacy should be carefully distinguished from a relevant and familiar yet different theme: the legitimacy of the actual existing global governance order. Legitimacy was regarded as a thoroughly normative notion associated with public moral justification, legality, and representativeness. Such a notion was able to cover all or most of the aspects of legitimacy that tend to recur frequently in the theoretical and practical debate on the legitimacy of organizations.

Keywords: International Governance; legitimacy; moral justification; non-governmental organization (NGO) involvement
