On this episode, we complete our three-part miniseries on Civil Society, hosted by Mikayla Novak who explores civil society, encompassing the practical nature of voluntary mutual assistance outside but entangled with the domains of market and state, the theoretical dimensions of civil society, and the intersection of classical liberalism and civil society.

Joining Novak for this episode is Paul Dragos Aligica, discussing the impact of growing up in communist Romania, the importance of human freedom, the "third sector" or voluntary and nonprofit sectors, the variety of institutional organizational forms associated to civil society, Ostromian polycentricity, checking central power, and more.
