Civilization is the process of civilizing or becoming civil. “Civilization” is often used as a synonym for the broader term “culture“.

Every human being participates in a culture, defined as “the arts, customs, habits… beliefs, values, behaviour and material habits that constitute a people’s way of life”. However, in its most widely used definition, civilization can be distinguished from other cultures by its high level of social complexity and organization, and by its diverse economic and cultural activities.
