Abstract. Over time, many types of communities have crystallised in society, which have been regulated by the law and which participate more or less politically in governance in the broadest sense. These are various associations of persons and associations of assets. The basic prerequisite for the contemporary view of civil society is (i.a.) (i) the existence of diverse associations of persons and assets and (ii) their willingness to cooperate with the state, with other public entities and their will to participate in governance - to influence and participate in it, because the hallmark of such „extra-state“ entities is voluntariness, also in their activities, also self-governing and autonomous character and separateness from the state. The author discusses the development of civil society in our country (from the second half of the 19th century to the present) and points out that the legal aspects of the formation of civil society are related to the democratisation of society and the promotion of the concept of deriving the source of state power from the citizens. Associations of persons have contributed to theachievement of civic equality in the political sense and have influenced various areas of public affairs and their administration, as well as contributing to the emergence and development of a relatively young institution - that of interest self-government. The author points out that civil society can also be shaped restrictively. For the favourable development of the democratic organisation of the state and society and for the observance of the rule of law, it is necessary to preserve a free environment for the development of civil society in all its forms, including associations.

Key words: associations, association of persons, association of assets, civil society, selfgovernment, interest self-government, governance
