Volume 68, No. 4 (Winter 2001): 1081-1092

ABSTRACT: The article discusses the factors affecting the civil society in Europe. The author offers information about the characteristics of the postsovereign states and the implications of the weakening of the state. It has become increasingly doubtful that in today's world the state is or should be the bearer of a national identity, the main actor in a process of modernization and therefore the key to economic growth and social integration. The weakening of the state is global because the reasons for that weakening are global, although local differences matter enormously.
