Summary/Abstract: In the last few years, there appeared a growing interest in the multi-faceted research of the Community, as the institutional structure which manages the daily life of certain social groups. Given the process of globalization, specific governing acts are sent to suprastatal, regional or continental organizations. This “upwards” shift of sovereignty is balanced by the “downwards” takeover of a package of policies – generally connected to the primary requirements of any social group: education, justice, social security, religion, etc. – supported by structures which are close to the citizens. These structures, which implement “grass-root” policies, are relatively small social groups and, due to the fact that there are objectively closer to individuals and that they know their needs better, they can better find solutions for their immediate needs
