Constitutions may deal with these matters in more or less adequate ways, however, and contribute more or less to the legitimacy of the respective polity. The notion of legitimacy is a diffuse and complex one, usually combining the aspects of (formal) legality, (normative) acceptability and (empirical) acceptance of a system of government. While constitutions do in fact constitute some sort of legal order, and actual acceptance may vary according to circumstances and quite irrespective of the contents of a constitution, it makes sense to concentrate here on the aspect of acceptability, that is, on the question of whether the constitution constitutes a legal order and system of government which is of a kind that, in the given societal context, can be reasonably expected to be acceptable to all its members as the one that suits their needs and basic values.

In this sense Riker’s realist point of departure is obvious. And statesmen are important; the progress of the European Union in the 1980s and 1990s owed much to Francois Mitterand, Jacques Delors and Helmut Kohl. Equally the problems of ratifying the CT owe a lot to the lack of committed European statesmen.
