“No fundamental social change occurs merely because government acts. It's because civil society, the conscience of a country, begins to rise up and demand change” Joe Biden
Personal freedom can be exercised only in the society with the genuine democracy, where the society takes a major position in the development of a country. Civil society characterizes the whole of social activities, which are not dependant from the government authorities and which represent the real level of society self-management.
Over the past decade there has been a considerable growth in the role and size of civil society all over the world, connected with the globalization and spread of democratic governance. Nowadays, civil society organizations are important actors in supporting social development, peacebulding process, advocacy of human rights, and post-conflict reconciliation.
