    From 'wordpad' >>> Civic is a word derived from the Latin Word “civi – tates”. It means citizen or of citizen. Many authorities in many ways have defined the concept. Civic is defined as a branch of social science that studies the rights and duties of citizens. Others define it as a science that studies the theory and practice of free and open democratic society. Still others define it as a science that studies international socio-economic and political conditions. Other people again define it as a science that studies the purpose of government, the nature of the law, and the way private behavior affects the public order and the political system. Finally, others define it as the intensive study and understanding of political institutions such as law making institutions, executive bodies, political parties, etc.

    In general civic study the rights and responsibilities of citizens. Civic education, therefore, is education for developing responsible ways of thinking, believing and acting. It helps you how to deal with differences through tolerance, respect and mutual understanding. It is a tool for good citizenship, community service and personal responsibility.

The subject also studies the cultures, values and norms of people in a given society. Thus, it is related with sociology. Civics also studies constitutions, the rights and duties of citizens. Thus, it is related with law. As Civics studies state structures and nature of governments, we say it is related with Political Science. As it also studies human experience at different times, in relation with the growth and development of governments and systems, it is related with History.

    In addition, the discipline also draws its sources from international documents such as United Nations Declaration of Human Rights and other similar international conventions, constitutions, decisions and enactments of legal bodies.
