Abstract

Viele international agierende Nichtregierungs-Organisationen (NGOs) sehen sich einem Legitimationsdefizit gegenueber. Die Distanz zu den von ihrem Handeln betroffenen Personen wird zunehmend groesser. Der Beitrag untersucht verschiedene Ansaetze zur Loesung dieses Problems, wobei die Diskurstheorie des Rechts nach Juergen Habermas als Leitfaden dient. Anhand dieser werden auch die derzeit entstehenden Codes of Conduct von NGOs als moegliche Loesung des Legitimationsdefizits diskutiert.
