Civil society-Government Cooperation Strategy
Civil society – Government Cooperation Strategy:
The Civil society organizations as the integral part of the social system, enables citizens to actively participate in all social matters. Also, as additional benefits from further development of civil society organizations are the stimulation of social cohesion and creation of sustainable social capital. Civil society organizations also possess a high economic potential expressed through their role as employers, i.e. to involve the economically active population in their activities and thus help reduce the problems related to unemployment. Consequently, it should be the interest of government to support the development of civil society organizations, meanwhile the latter acting as a constructive complimentary actor in all social areas defined as in-need-of intervention. The strategy should nurture the mutual trust, partnership and transparency in communication, and at the same time it maintains the principle of independence of the civil society organizations sector from the state.
