stand in relation to

I can't come up with a satisfying translation for this verb in the following context:

Moral responsibility is the terrain on which agents stand in relation to one another outside institutions.

la traduction:

La responsabilité morale est donc le terrain sur lequel des agents moraux s'entendent les uns avec les autres.

s'entendre is the closest I've come up with, but is not what I would like to say. Any ideas would be great.
