GLOBALISATION AND ITS IMPACT ON CIVIL SOCIETY: PHILOSOPHICAL, LEGAL AND SOCIOLOGICAL ASPECTS

Hanna Duszka-Jakimko

Abstract


This article discusses the philosophical, constitutional and ideological implications of civil society for the democratic state. Part one describes the importance of society in the liberal concept of individualism and the communitarian concept of community. It also tries to define the term “civil society” and presents some definitions that exist within the doctrine.

Part two shows the civil society as an entity independent from the state. The democratic states of today express the idea of civil society directly or indirectly in their constitutions, from which many rights of the individuals derive and give them a sense of participation in the state.

The last part deals with the contemporary meaning of civil society in the context of globalisation. Globalisation as a process changes the “sense of civility” into the “sense of community”.
