The term ‘civil society’ refers to an arena – separate from the state, the market and private households – where people organise and act together in pursuit of common interests. The area includes everything from networks and non-profit organisations to registered religious communities, etc. This policy area covers opportunities to form organisations, receive state aid and help people become involved and run activities.
