Hromada (Ukrainian: Громада) - association of the people united by mutual interest, position or goal, widely known in Ukraine.

In history of Ukraine and Belarus such associations appeared first as peasant communes, which gathered their meetings for discussing and resolving current issues.

Hromada means not only social association of some people, but in broader sense a symbolic unity of any territorial population or the whole national society.

Name "hromada" was frequently used by political and social organizations, newspapers in Ukraine.

At present, the term is more often applied in Ukraine, as a "territorial commune" (Ukrainian: Територіальна громада) naming the population of any region. The Constitution of Ukraine and some other laws, including the "Law on local self-governance", delegate certain rights and obligations for "hromada". But "hromada" does not have the rights of a legal entity.
