Abstract

The concept of 'civil society' is relevant in contemporary discussions and concerns the relationship between democracy and governance. In addition to emergent active citizenry, civil society is composed of the totality of voluntary civic and social organisations and institutions that form the basis of a functioning democratic society, in contrast to market-based commercial institutions and the force-backed structures of the state. Therefore together the state, the market and civil society constitute the entirety of a society, and the relations between these three determine the structure and the character of a society.
