This chapter presents an overview of the circumstances and steps leading to the emergence of the Community and Voluntary Pillar (CVP). It sets out how, from the late 1980s, new elements of civil society began to engage with parts of government. The chapter identifies the key political and economic circumstances and institutional developments in relation to CVP. It describes the composition of the CVP and a significant component of the CVP, the Community Platform. The chapter presents a brief overview of how Pillar and Platform evolved over time. Irish social partnership was also very consciously constructed in the shadow of developments at European Community level, including the recognition given under the European Union (EU) Commission, led by Jacques Delors, to 'social dialogue'. One of the distinctive features of the new phase of social partnership in Ireland was its hybrid character.
