Applied Politics
(Master’s programme)
2017
Theoretical and methodological grounds for studying the legitimacy of political regimes are considered in this paper. The main models of legitimacy are presented, attention is paid to the main empirical research on this problem. As a result of the regression analysis of the relationship between the type of political regime and the level of legitimacy, the hypothesis was confirmed: "The democratization of the political regime entails an increase in legitimacy". On the basis of the study, conclusions were drawn about the differences in the mechanisms of legitimation used in democratic and undemocratic regimes.
