Andorrans make the most of a healthy civic space, with over 400 officially-registered general associations, reflecting an incredibly vibrant civil society sector amongst the country’s small population. Organisations range from professional associations of estate agents to organisations like the Andorra Women’s Association, which carries out public advocacy around important social issues such as domestic and gender-based violence. Organisations benefit from the protection of a strong rule of law. Article 17 of the Andorran constitution recognises the right to form associations for ‘a lawful purpose’ and a law from the year 2000 provides details on how associations should be formed and governed.
