Abstract: This study aims to present the relations of the public and civil sectors that endeavor to eliminate social inequalities, primarily, as it describes the relational characteristics of the civil organizations, civilians and the local government. It highlights the practice of partnership that currently determines the relationship of the two sectors in Hungary, and presents the civil sector’s economic weight, stages of development and directions. We will also deal with the developmental stages of the relation between the third sector that emerged after the political transformation and the local government, as well as with the necessity for cooperation between these two sectors. The study presents the reasons why the Hungarian civil society cannot overcome particular difficulties and increase their social integration and activity through the characteristics of project activities and tendering practices.
Keywords: Third Sector; Cooperation Characteristics of Civil Organization and Local Governments; Social Challenges; Projectification of the Civil Sector.
