Abstract

The article defines the concept of “civil society institutions” and presents their different types. The characteristic features of civil society institutions are identified, which distinguish them from other civil society organizations, like: common interest, activity or defined territory that unites citizens into an institutional organization of the civil society; their independence from local governments, public authorities, and other entities; non-commercial nature of their activities. The position of the civil society institutions development and their participation in governance as a component of the democratic state building, is highlighted in the article. The analysis of the normative-legal base, which regulates the legal relations of the interaction of civil society institutions with local self-government bodies, is carried out. It is established that the legal basis which regulates the interaction and legal relations of local governments with individual civil society institutions is the Constitution of Ukraine, international legal documents, other special laws of Ukraine, regulations. Based on the analysis, key aspects of cooperation are identified, which are proposed to be regulated by amending the Law of Ukraine “On Local Self-Government in Ukraine” which provides a separate article that will be the legal basis for building relations between all established civil society institutions and local governments. Analyzing the Decree of the President of Ukraine “On promoting the development of civil society in Ukraine” (2016), the authors concluded that it is necessary to regulate the aspects defined in this normative document and develop a strategy for cooperation between local governments and civil society institutions. The article proves the importance of using fundraising technology as a form of interaction between the researched subjects, which will satisfy their interests. The necessity of including fundraising technology in the strategy of development of interaction between local self-government bodies and civil society institutions is argued.
