Abstract

Although some voluntary organizations and associations of citizens emerged during the whole historical development of human society, the notion non-governmental organization (NGO) started to be used and to play an important role only by the constitution of the United Nations, which is in 1945. Since then, and particularly in the end of XX century, the so-called nongovernmental sector developed and became stronger so that nowadays it presents a distinguishing and very important factor of political, economic and overall development of individual - mainly developed -countries of the world. To be precise, in the recent period, the role of nongovernmental organizations sector in creation and promotion of modern, and/or successful general social development of each social community (specially democratic development and democratic management, protection of environment, human rights and similar developments), has gained ever enhanced significance. Nevertheless, functioning and the impact of non-governmental sector in developing countries and in the so-called countries in transition, therefore in Bosnia and Herzegovina and its entities too, are not at the desired, and/or satisfactory level. That is why this paper gives a theoretical retrospect of the essence, importance and the role of non-governmental organizations as an unavoidable and equal partner to governmental and private sector in achieving as successful as possible overall, the so-called sustainable development of each modern social community.
