Responses will vary. Institutions that specialize in the exercise of power form the state. These institutions formulate and carry out a country’s laws and public policies (executive branch—initiate and enforce laws; legislature—pass laws; judiciary—interpret laws). Civil society consists of areas of social life that are organized by individuals and groups beyond the direct control of the state (families, businesses, political parties, social movements, and the mass media).
