Title: The democratic legitimacy of regional regimes: the Dutch case of Brainport Eindhoven
Author: van Ostaaijen, Julien
Abstract: A regional regime is the informal arrangements by which autonomous and semi-autonomous actors work together to make and carry out governing decisions relevant to a specific region. Looking at regimes with different democracy models (representative, direct, participatory) leads to questions on the democratic legitimacy of a regime: While the involvement of private stakeholders seems adequate from a participatory perspective, the models raise questions on the limited participation of citizens. Nevertheless, each democracy model also provides its own answer on how that role can be enforced. The Dutch case of Brainport, a regional public-private partnership, will illustrate how.
