This article focuses on the impact of the implementation of European structural funds (SF) in Poland both on its administrative institutions as well as on civil society. It attempts to assess the system of distribution of SF developed by the Polish government, stressing features inherited from the communist regime, its effectiveness and the potential evolution of institutional arrangements. The article also examines to what extent implementation of the partnership principle, one of the rules of application of the SF, leads to the creation of new channels for participation and thus eventually contributes to mobilisation within civil society.
