Interaction  between  civil  society  organizations  and  the  state  in  Russia  is analyzed on the basis of fieldwork in the Sortavala district in Karelia. The liberal and statist models wrongly assume that civil society and the state are distinct and  opposing  entities;  this  study  shows  that  in  practice  they  overlap  and
intersect.  The  often-made  distinction  between  policy-advocacy  and  service-provision organizations is overly reductionist, since one organization can perform both  functions.  The  cases  discussed  are  a  Municipal  Social  Service  Center  that bundles public and civic efforts; an independent child protection organization that  actively  collaborates  with  the  authorities;  and  a  network  of  women’s organizations  that  has  successfully  proposed  regional  policy  initiatives.  The article  presents  a  case  for  studying  state-civil  society  relations  in  Russia ethnographically and at the local and regional level.
