The integral part of civic culture (community spirit) that regulates the political relationships between citizens, political groups, and national and supranational institutions, including international institutions. In differentiated societies, while each social layer possesses certain particularities of its own p.c. of its own, at the same time there are norms and institutions common to all that guarantee a relative sociopolitical stability and impede social disintegration. The State’s p.c. is set in the juridical norms and institutions that correspond to the political sphere, including the constitution, electoral laws and other documents. The p.c. also includes traditions and customs that are transmitted through the group and even from the level of the family.
