Lecture:
Berthold Rittberger, Chair of International Relations, Department of Political Science, University of Munich

Abstract:
The liberal international order currently experiences a manifest legitimacy crisis, which is often associated with attributes, such as “Brexit”, “Trump”, or, more generally, the rise of anti-liberal forces challenging the prevailing liberal international order (LIO). I contend that the current crisis of the LIO is, at least in parts, a homemade crisis. While the LIO exhibits self-reinforcing characteristics, it simultaneously provokes reactive sequences, which weaken the existing institutional order. In a first step, I characterize the progressive institutionalization of the LIO as a path-dependent development, characterized by self-reinforcing mechanisms: Ideational self-reinforcement highlights the stickiness of the rationalizing promise of IOs, operating as putatively unbiased and technocratic problem-solvers. Functional and power-based returns stabilize the existing order since the LIO has also created beneficiaries with vested interests. In a second step, I argue that these self-reinforcing mechanisms have triggered a self-undermining process, which is poised to destabilize the LIO by breeding dissatisfaction with the LIO. The interplay of two characteristics of the LIO – IO’s predominantly technocratic legitimation rationale as well as the political authority they command – are responsible for creating a normative legitimacy gap contributing to the erosion of its social legitimacy, i.e. the legitimacy beliefs held by the LIO’s constituents. To illustrate the plausibility of this self-undermining process, I turn to a highly developed sub-order of the LIO: The EU presents a ‘most-likely case’ in which the conditions triggering self-undermining tendencies should be present and particularly strong.

Lecture: Prof. Adrienne Héritier, professor emeritus, European University Institute in Florence

Abstract:
The lecture will focus on the strategies which the EP applied across time in order to extend its institutional power. This increased institutional power allows the EP to wield more influence on policy making. The presentation will focus on the EP´s increase of power in legislation, the nomination and investiture of the Commission, the budgetary process as well as the substantive area of economic governance in the context of the Euro crisis. To put the rise of the EP´s influence in relation to the power wielded by the other institutional actors, in particular member states and the European Council, it discusses arguments of the so-called ‘New intergovernmentalism’.
