Questions related to Social Development
How do you balance economic growth and need for balance among economic growth social development and environment protection?
Education is the basic parameter of the social development and poverty alleviation. The more we educated more we will be able to uplift ourselves. All we need for the educational planner have to give a sense of confidence to the public that if you are educated you will be self-reliant but unfortunately our educational system is unable to provide confidence in the public? Until unless education is unable to translate into employment it is of no use for persons living below the poverty. Are our system addresses such concerns?
I would like my dissertation topic to be reviewed by anyone that has a moment please. Its a topic i am willing to work on for my PhD.
Topic: Corporate Social Responsibility in Nigeria: Bridging the gap between Private sector and the needs of the community through social development hubs.
I am working in the field of social sustainability research. I am struggling to find the theories used in Social Sustainability. Actually, for the development of the theoretical framework of my thesis, I need a theory that explains social sustainability and its themes, for example, Health, Transportation availability, Satisfied with Space, Open Space, and so on.
Would you please help me to provide the information about which theory can explain social sustainability and its themes?
Hello fellow researchers,
Could you please recommend which instrument is suitable for measuring Dweck's Growth Mindset for primary school-age children (age 8-12 or age 10-12)? and preferable if there is a Dutch version of it.
Thank you very much
I am carrying out a research on improving social teaching strategies for preschool children in kindergarten. I will summarize teaching strategies to improve children's social development through in-depth understanding of Reggio, Montessori, Multiple Intelligence and other education models. I hope you can help me provide professional resources and literature, especially relevant research on international mainstream teaching mode. Thank you very much!
Hope this is acceptable, but having reached a point in my career where I can return to teaching, I am actively searching for any online teaching positions in Developmental Psychology. My research focus has been on cognitive and social development, taking an information processing approach. If any one is aware of any appropriate opportunities and can direct me it would be very much appreciated. Regards. Jaime Goldfarb.
Is architecture a product of a person’s fear of something specific?
When fear is not in the emergence of architecture: Was the first human dealing with building architecture in order to protect against the danger of animals?
So he made the door, and out of the hot and cold air, he made windows. A person is afraid of something and gives a certain measure in it, and these enter into the human area, And fear here is evidence of the existence of architecture.
And when an architectural movement appears, what it aims at in meeting certain requirements regarding technological or social developments, and it is a reason for the emergence of the pioneers of the old architecture movement that confronts the technological (as something new) or that the new is derived from the old.
I study contextual factors (including cultural factors) that determine the socio-emotional development of children aged 10 and 15 years. This study is part of the SSES international study - The Study on Social and Emotional Skills. Are there any similar studies on russian samples?
I have a background both in business management and social development. I would like to find management strategies that will create an impact on social development strategies in near future.
What does Financing and Taxation look like in the digital age context? How would there be a "cashless" world but only with "virtual money "?
The current challenges at the global level are multiple, considering the current models regarding the financing and the supervision at the global level, the virtual currencies, the time banks, the food banks, the fintechs, points credit card based on work done, etc. Moreover, for the sustainable social development starting from the 17 SDGs set out in the UN Agenda, as well as from the Fiscalis 2020 programs (The Fiscalis 2020 Programs / Taxation and Customs Union, the cooperation of the national tax authorities at European level), you consider that they can lead to a world interconnected and working through the digital financial system. It could be a model at the global level and for the society as a whole, the orientation being related to the well-being of the individual in the society.
It is not the weak quality of education in LDCs that hinders its contribution to economic and social development, but the formal and informal institutional factors that are invaded by corruption and feeble role of law ...
Just think about it, red socialism came under extreme capitalism pressure that was forcing it to either adapt or evolve, pressure that led to adapting as new capitalist markets since 1991.....
Those in favor of adaptation in 1991 had the advantage that there was no traditional market paradigm shift knowledge gap as micro and macroeconomic knowledge is a given so they knew what to do and the paradigm flip took place from socially friendly, but economic unfriendly red socialism to socially unfriendly, but economic friendly capitalism.....
Those in favor of evolving had the disadvantage in 1991 as there was a deep red market paradigm shift knowledge gap as red micro and red macroeconomic knowledge did not exist so they did not know what to do and let the paradigm flip go unchallenged.....so the shift needed to keep Karl Marx's dream alive did not take place, the shift from socially friendly, but economy unfriendly red socialism to the socially and economy friendly red socialism or red market model.
The ideas shared above raise the question, Is the red market paradigm shift knowledge gap behind the flip from red socialism to pure capitalism? I think yes, what do you think?

As a researcher, if you are given the opportunity to frame a policy for; Holistic development either for an individual, group or community which single area would you select. Please do give only the name of the area only. Thank You
Government plays a key role in a country’s economic and social development. Not having as a primary objective to make profit, public sector entities seek to effectively provide goods and services that improve and maintain the citizens' welfare level. Unlike private sector companies which generate a measurable stream of profit and revenue, the measurement of government performance is harder and more complex. A General Government Performance Index was developed through relevant sources (World Bank, WGI/WDI, Social Progress Index, the Global Competitiveness Index, etc). I am looking for useful answer(s) on the factors that could government performance.

Title: "Elementary investigation on Division of Labour, Part 1"
Authors: Harshad Dave,
Abstract If the “Division of Labour” is just a process of selecting work point in social system and network by a man not only for retaining self existence but to realize the living of his dream, it is too superficial analysis of a vital term of economics. Human society could evolve with the help and application of discoveries and inventions (in short – DIs) successfully applied on natural resources. It also required for material support and application of labor to secure targeted results. This process warranted a systematic coordination among application of DIs, exploration, control and regulation of natural resources, labor support for the application. Simultaneous and synchronized functioning of above three constituted a process to which we address as the classical coordination. However, the evolution of human society under the classical coordination realized with various preconditions to be complied by men.
Here it is tried to reveal the facts of social development/evolution under the process of classical coordination. The process of division of labor is an inseparable part of the classical coordination. The classical coordination is basic to evolution of human society. The original constitution of evolved division of labor with the evolution of human society under classical coordination is perfect and without any contamination of human unethical values. Unfortunately the spoiled social environment due to frequent and innumerable breaches of preconditions encouraged application of abilities of men (members of the society) in unethical ways/means. It contaminated the naturally evolved process of division of labor. The spoiled process of division of labor introduced disappointment and agony in the minds of the people that were victimized by the unethical application of abilities to favor incompetent people or to secure self interests and ultimately it resulted into a class struggle. The consequential results of contaminated process of division of labor are also discussed in short.
Most representation of sustainability shared in wikipedia are in my opinion incorrect, but they are there. Here is an example.
Can you see what is wrong in this representation?
I am looking for resources that can assist me in developing a course module on sociology of development for a bachelors program. It will be great if you can share with me book chapters, articles on theories of development, gender and development, social development, economic development, sustainable development, globalization and development, indicators of development and international development. I will also appreciate any course module outlines that cover any of these topics to help me develop an interesting module for the program

Recently, there is an increasing discussion concerning the price for scientific literature. At university, it is no problem to get adequate information for free but in non-university villages, it might be impossible to get the current papers of scientific work for a adequate price. What is your experience?
Now a days there r less research contribution to the society. We are the researcher only thinking how to flourish/ boom our career. What does really it bring to the society? Even though our respondents are not giving their clear cut information on particular matters. Is this the correct way only to flourish our own interest. Please expert provide some opinions.
I am looking for articles on language (speech, vocabulary, and so on) and social development of children and adolescents. Especially I would be interested in materials that introduce theories for those two concepts or integrate them to any extent together.
I would like to analyse the relationship between the social progress of a country with the level of population growth. What other variables should I take into account in order to conduct a regression analysis?
I ask this question because I have already heard this assertion several times; each time it was stated by different people including even researchers. It would appear that there are factors in the professional life of a researcher that are incompatible (even diametrically opposed) with other factors in his social life.
What is your opinion on the question?
Thank you and I apologize if my question is misplaced.
I am looking for evidence on social development. Although, many researchers including Brundtland Commission Report (1987) defined sustainable development as development that “meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”, is this definition is only limited to physical aspects of development?
If so what about the social aspects of development?
Can the social development too sustainable? If so how?
Nowadays, every one, virtually have the ability to quickly communicate and touch the whole world through the recent media tools, Internet and social networks like twitter, Facebook and the like….. ,, we can see now that words or actions of one persons in one side from the world reach the most far away locations in the opposite side of the world .
in the past we saw some words and/actions of "normal" persons like Martin Luther king, Gandi , Mandilla ,... etc who could significantly made changes in a large scale for their area of the world or even the whole world , which took significantly long time to be realized but it did .
reaching others in large scale didn't take such long time as before, so how and how long it takes for making remarkable positive change?
Six years ago we saw Mohamed Bouazizi who was a Tunisian street salesperson who set himself on fire on 17 December 2010, that became a catalyst for the Tunisian Revolution and the wider Arab Spring, which also is argued to start a sharp rise in global protest and change activity in many other locations.
as per my information, there is no study showing a concrete frame work or theory showing how such this wave can start, continue and result in a positive social change. and how this could be controlled, judged, and /or measured?
This topic about "highly integrative questions" is introduced by prof. Stephan Janssen, who speaks about 'The Smogfree City’ as the ultimate new desire of metropoles like Shanghai.
In our recent research we want to find out what are these highly integrative questions? What do we need to be good at to be really helpful with those questions? And how do we get to the table?
Any good articles,studies or other resources in mind that could help in my research?
Higher education has been a critical factor for the economic and social development of countries. This is so because higher education institutions are the foundations for an economically competitive society. Very recently, more and more, technology is being integrated into the higher education systems. Maybe the greatest opportunity for this integration is leveraging higher education institutions to reach many learners, and the chance to accelerate learning as never before. In this search, which way round seems more convincing? Technology is driving learning, or learning driving technology.
I'm working with a group of community leaders in Ciudad Bolivar, Venezuela to assess the most important needs, and form an humanitarian organization to help resolve them, directly or doing the bridge to existing institutions.
My colleague's thesis consists of a situation where she has performed a t-test to analyse the differences between male and female respondents' responses with respect to all the independent and dependent variables in the study. Is it right to do so? If yes, please elicit references.
Is Chi-square a more appropriate test in this situation? If yes, please elicit references.
To be precise, the thesis proposed to compare male and female respondent differences across all their independent and dependent variables measured through a structured questionnaire of 55 items on a 5-point likert scale of respondents' self-reported opinions of agree/disagree and neutral types through that particular hypothesis
Critical mindsets are based on freedom as a corner stone for freeing man from blind obedience to ready set orders. It's to be organized not irresponsible, ( John Hogan 2005, p 97) it's being precise not excessive, the type of freedom that provides the suitable environment to prosper innovative and creative thinking that has nothing to do with accusing others of being non-believers, sin committers, betrayers, blackmailers, or accusing them of exercising marginalization or exile, a type of freedom ( Dana Kay Nelkin 2011, p 36) that would grant individuals liable choices without any external pressure or authoritative command, where obstacles are overcome to reach tangible and theoretical achievements. Man was born free; accordingly he should be fully aware and responsible for his choices. Freedom is a natural right, not in need for further evidence or proof, as it is an original part of the human structure, but at the same time it doesn't mean to contradict reality or losing disciplines, it stops once it confronts others' freedoms, as pointed by Voltaire. It is self reforming as evident in the right of expression, movement, making living, ( Edward Peters 1989, p 341 ) transportation and showing opinion. It's also a group reformer in seeking liberty from suppress, exploitation, control and oppression as that exercised by occupying forces upon a certain country or state. It is the free will that is based on man's making of his own choices concerning life, deciding destiny, acceptance and refusal, a freedom that deals with reality in a rational way, where we find responsible interaction and obedience for laws in return for acquiring man's right in possession, opinion and decision, according to John Luke.
Freedom is the only appropriate surrounding that enables thinking, interaction and guarantees social development. All efforts are in vain if society is not freed as whole, from sectarianism, partisanship, tribal alliances and all other secondary affiliations to remain adhered to the basic and effective belongingness, the state.
Tyranny and absence of freedom had its dire impact upon scientific action in Europe, where the church controlled most of the scientific and intellectual activities, imposing strict supervision upon thinking and innovation, setting the crime of being a disbeliever as a ready allegation against those who care to think, to the extent that trials were set against any attempts in the direction of change(paul Ehrlich 2000, p395) . The most eminent victims then were, Copernicus, Galileo Galileo, who was forced by the authority of the court to state that earth doesn't turn around itself, and Isaac Newton for his gravity theories and laws.
I would like to discuss the short-run strategies for the economic growth and social development. There are necessarily common strategies whatever the country.
Thanks in advance.
There can be different benefits for community from brownfield redevelopment in urban areas like:
- removing health and environmental concerns or perceptions
- promoting smart growth (reusing of property instead of vacant land)
- promoting economic growth (increasing tax base and creating jobs)
- removing blighted property
- building ties among residents, businesses, and all parties involved
- building community awareness and empowering communities to address a problem that directly affects them
But i want to know the perspective about Rural Brownfield.
I'm investigating a relationship between career calling and satisfaction in the context of Social Development practitioners.
Just think about it…
Karl Marx was aware that production price equal to cost-price plus profit(KP = C + i) and he was not fan of where the profits were going and he knew that producing at an economic loss in the long-term is not a good plan, but a 3 stages development plan to achieve socialism at a profit or socially friendly capitalism in the long term may have crossed his head…..
Marx would not have encouraged a long-term red socialism production program at an economic loss, I think….Was somehow Karl Marx proposing red markets or socially friendly capitalism as the long term road to socialism, not the red socialism program at a loss implemented?....
For Karl Marx, C = Cost price and i = average profit
See if production price is KP = C + i , and
if C = SM + ECM, where SM = Social margin and ECM = economic margin.
KP = SM + ECM + i
The three stages of development to socialism at a profit can be stated as follows:
a) Stage 1: Red socialism as implemented
KP1 = SM
b) Stage 2: Red socialism at zero profit
KP2 = SM + ECM
c) Stage 3: Red socialism at a profit or red markets
KP3 = SM + ECM + i
With the understanding of capitalism Karl Marx had, this thought above would be consistent with his thought if he only had problems with where the profits were going and he wanted to redirect them to the state, not to private individuals.
Notice that since ECM + i = P = The traditional market price, then
KP3 = SM + P
The formula above is the formula of a red market or socially friendly capitalism or red socialism at a profit.
Was this what Karl Marx actually proposed?....That is where former red socialist countries including China arrived in 1991 when they shifted from red socialism to red markets….What do you think?
My dissertation topic is to study and compare the relationship between working parents and social development/maturity of their kids. I wanted to include in my sample, couples where both are working, one working parent and also single parents. Which scale would suit best?
Cities with a similar population (~22000) to Powell River, BC, Canada.
Single industry cities would be fantastic, but not essential.
Indian government adopted in 1990 a policy for providing in government employment reservation of jobs and admission in publicly-run educational institutions for people from socially and economically backward classes. These are referred to as Other Backward castes (OBCs).Class for this purpose is determined by including people from certain identified castes but not from the creamy layer of such castes (i.e. richer people). It was vehemently opposed by especially students from higher castes in 1990. Somehow, the law and policy have survived. Today, India has 27 percent reservation of jobs in government and admission to government schools for people from OBCs. There has been perception of injustice by certain other castes, who were not identified originally as OBCs. They have made demands for inclusion in the OBCs category. This has become a highly volatile and disputable issue. Often, this has led to violence by these castes. Especially, students from the higher castes have opposed it vigorously. Contemporary India is grappling with this issue with recent massive violence of this nature in Haryana state.
What are your views on this issue? Do you have some such provisions for reservation or affirmative action in your country?
Specifically Parent-Child programs where both parent and child participates and interacts with one another.
Some locaities in California and New York are still using Rent Control but nationwide, the majority have abolished such regulations following policy advice from academic scholars and practitioners who used statistical analysis to prove that rent control reduces housing supply and qualities.

Women have traditionally been occupied in pre- and post-harvest processing of the products and marketing the catch.Unfortunately, limited access to resources, inputs and credit and inadequate technical competency, poor participation in decision making, limited exposure to mass media often become the limiting factors for the fisher women for their economic and social development. How they can be empowered in Indian condition.
Are there any articles about gifted children, their parents concerns and their social - emotional adjustment?
Does local government in the development countries lead to the actual social and economic development, as it paved a new way to the corruption to the new people and hence the new corrupt people emerged in the society, give comments on these.
In rolling out sustainable development projects, it becomes more and more important to perform Social Impact Assessment together with the traditional Environmental Impact Assessment.
To what extent has the consent of Indigenous people been taken into consideration in sustainable and biodiversity projects, especially in the context of eco-tourism and eco-park developments.
Will appreciate if anyone can inform about case studies or express an opinion please.
Creation of normative models in social sciences was one of the essential features of modernist era. But is it still possible in post-modernist times?
"Good Health is essential to sustained economic and social development and poverty reduction. Access to needed health services is crucial for maintaining and improving health. At the same time, people need to be protected from being pushed into poverty because of the cost of health care." WHO
R. Titmuss and G.Esping-Andersen an the end of last century created a well-known welfare typology, politically based on left-right division and de-commodification relations. Can a mainly communities-based welfare model be created instead of the former welfare division?
As welfare states traditional typology shows the signs of exhaustion and tiredness in theory but especially in practice, maybe there are other ways of its revival? Maybe a community-oriented social policy model can substitute former welfare typology? Or something else? Or should we have a vacuum of such ideas after a decade or two?
Public schools' curricula are based in large part on developmental needs of children and adolescents. For example, much of early childhood lessons take into consideration the social component of learning, i.e, cooperation, getting along with others, etc. As children's social development matures and they progress through school, so too does the need for teaching or lessons to change or to remain developmentally appropriate. By the time students reach adolescence, teachers' lessons might call for students to develop group projects as part of a course requirement. There are many other childhood and adolescent developmental needs that become embedded into their K-12 (and beyond) education. One developmental aspect that I don't see reflected in school curricula is racial identity development. Racial identity development theorists (Cross, Helms, etc.) have posited for decades the importance of one's racial identity development. In detailing her racial identity models, Helms (2003) talks about how racial identity development is a natural part of children and adolescents' development that's constantly being expressed in the classroom environment. Such moments are great opportunities for teachers to help children of color to feel connected to all others in the school/classroom and positive about themselves and others of their racial group. However, teachers without appropriate knowledge and skills are not able to respond effectively to students' racial identity related behaviors.
Is there any research out there that looks into attending to student racial identity needs within the school context?
Social security is based on intergenerational transfers (from active workers to pensioners) and in this way, it replaces the support given from children to parents (upward transfers) within the family. What were the main features of the family structure, dependency rates, fertility, life expectancy for men and women and other characteristics when Germany implemented its social security programs led by Bismarck?
The panacea of private pensions funds is abandoning its positions in some eastern European and Latin American countries. Does state social insurance have the future?
Modernization and Postmodernization presents an interesting and quite cogent theory about the congruity of change in economic, social, political and cultural factors, and about the path of development.
How we can adapt the curriculum to this kind of needs and especially for social development?
State social insurance and private pensions funds are widely known in many countries. Why do the state accumulative pensions funds still lack popularity and can they serve as an alternative?
Contracting out and privatization of social services is in advertising for more effective social administration in the world. However the threat in the underdeveloped world for clients not to have money to pay for privatized social services is very likely. In any case, if social services organization and delivery is left for the state or municipal authorities without privatization, the payments will be less or there will be no payments of clients at all. The national and municipal budgets will feel tensions, but the poor people themselves will be more happy having provided social services. Here I do not consider such situations when public money is devoted to a private organization or NGO to deliver services. The latter situation is also an alternative.
