In the summer of 2004, the UIA partnered with the Europhil Trust to edit, publish and host its Civil Society Glossary.

Europhil is a UK charity, registered on 21 July 1986 in London as European affiliate of International Standing Conference on Philanthropy (INTERPHIL). Europhil aims to promote research on the law and practice of member states relating to non-governmental agencies for the public benefit in and for Europe, i.e. European philanthropy.

The original version of the Civil Society Glossary was produced and edited for several years by former UIA Full Member and Europhil member, Frits Hondius. The most recent version appeared online, hosted by the UIA, in 2006.

This project has been made possible thanks to the efforts of Frits Hondius and Paul Bater (Europhil), Cyril Ritchie (INTERPHIL, UIA), and the UIA staff (notably Anthony Judge, Nadia McLaren and Tomáš Fülöpp).
