All-Ukrainian Council of Religious Associations as a Component of Civil Society in Ukraine
The idea of creating a religious council that would unite religious communities active in the public space of Ukraine was born several years ago, when it became clear that the All-Ukrainian Council of Churches and Religious Associations (hereinafter - the All-Ukrainian Council of Churches and Religious Associations) (hereinafter - the All-Ukrainian Council of Churches and Religious Associations) has no intention to expand . Any attempts by other religious associations to become a member of the AUCCIRO, under the influence of objective or subjective reasons, were doomed to failure. Therefore, in September-December 2016 several workshops of authorized representatives of various religious associations, which the AUCCI ignored, and representatives of the Ukrainian Association of Religious Studies took place at the Institute of Philosophy of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine. They discussed the necessity and concept of creating a new Council. Not an alternative to the existing, but some complementary it.
