    This report advance a socio-economic theory of the voluntary organisation aiming at conceiving this organisational form in its complexity and at analysing it from both the viewpoints of its economical and political (democratic) dimensions. Three questions are purpose: to what extend democratic organisations contribute to social democracy? What are the conditions for democratic functioning at the societal level? Is there a link between internal democracy (within voluntary organisations) and societal democracy? We claim analyze also, in theoretical terms, the consequence of an increasing function fill by the market and by the State in the democratic operation of voluntary organizations, independently of the field in which they operate, these organizations must make face with a tendency to commercialisation, in the direction where a growing proportion of voluntary organisations incomes is derived from the sale of services in a competitive market.
