Legitimacy challenges

This project aims to reveal conditions and mechanisms for sustaining legitimacy in societies in which there is a backlash on social and political right developments.

The project will be the most comprehensive cross-country study ever undertaken on this topic, and it is pioneering in its empirical and critical ambition to understand the rationale behind what seem to be a strong citizen driven mobilization against established institutions in democratic welfare states. The empirical foci are child protection interventions, child’s rights and the public debates about the Norwegian child protection system.
