Model of institutional modes legitimacy and its practical application

Model of institutional modes legitimacy and its practical application

Journal of Institutional studies, , Vol. 6 (no. 2),
p. 58-67

The author’s attempt to interpret the concept of institute legitimacy is given in the paper. The model for the analysis and forecasting of institutional systems as two-factorial legitimacy matrix including four institutional modes of legitimacy which differ from each other by a combination of legality and justice is presented. The model supplements the methodological and theoretical device of the institutional economic theory and is aimed at balance maintenance between legality and principles of social justice.
