Civil Society

A collection of persons who associate together to explore or promote their interests or goals. While civil society is not necessarily political or economic, it provides a sphere outside of the state or private sector in which people are motivated by their own goals, apart from profit or the good of the state. For that reason, civil society can exercise significant political influence. The growth of civil society is considered a mark of successful economic development of a country or region.
