Abstract in another language

The notions self-organisation and self-regulation are at least implicitly loaded with a positive democratic connotation. The main corresponding debates on social move-ments, governance and civil society mostly refer to the Global North with a well-func-tioning state and democratic political systems. One consequence is that the less dem-ocratic and less liberal hidden side of self-organisation, seen by some critics, does not gain much attention.
After a short discussion of the main theoretical approaches, the paper presents a se-lection of self-organised groups depicting their different values, norms, and structural features. These examples reach from democratic groups marked by solidarity to racist violent groups that are a threat to differently minded people. The analysis of these examples leads to a set of criteria for the comparative analysis of the internal structure of self-organised groups including potential membership, in- and outward orienta-tion, underlying basic principles of social order and types of trust with related types of decision-making. These basic elements help to understand the constitution and functioning of self-organisation, which are open to a wide range of value orientation.
