Power and Legitimation

Power – be it in the form of rulership or another type of dominance – is not examined as something one ‘holds’. Researchers at IHIST explore complex processes of achieving legitimation and recognition and thus creating structures of power. The constant renegotiation of legitimation is framed by social norms and cultural expectations. The analysis of power relations therefore entails an exploration of the dynamics of authority, resistance and empowerment.
