Civil Society

Civil society, broadly conceived as non-governmental organisations and groups that reflect the will of the people they represent, provide a wide range of services and support to individuals and families and can inform future policy development on immigration, asylum, integration and citizenship issues. COMPAS has studied their role in differing contexts, and collaborated with civil society organisations in many knowlege-exchange activities, in the UK and abroad.
