In addition to repression and co-optation, authoritarian regimes use redistributive and legitimizing strategies in order to secure heir survival. In this article we conceptualize and discuss different opportunities of legitimation through policy-making that can be sed in autocracies. We exemplify this concept by outlining autocractic legitimation strategies in innovation policy. Legitimation through policy-making is a double-edged sword, as it includes both potentials and risks for legitimation.
