In December 2009 the Swedish Government presented a bill entitled A policy for civil society (Govt. Bill 2009/10:55) to the Riksdag (the Parliament). The new policy will help the Government to highlight the great importance of civil society, develop and clarify the relationship between the state and civil society and take a holistic approach to general issues concerning civil society and its conditions. The bill also addresses issues concerning civil society entrepreneurship, state support to civil society organisations, other civil society funding, and issues regarding public meeting places.
