Factors that facilitate and impede positive social change

The various factors that promote or impede social change can generally be classified as socio-cultural, psychosocial, economic, natural, demographic, political, and so on. Natural factors can alter the climate, the discovery of natural resources such as minerals, oil, etc. are included, are those which are regarded as having a positive impact on society. Other natural factors include natural disasters such as earthquakes, floods, famine, drought, pestilence, and others. The emergence of the HIV / AIDS plague as for example having a major impact on the arrangement and organization of society.
Demographic factors, migration, urbanization, population growth, etc., It is also important to the development of socio-cultural change. Political factors such as the proposed government changes, change of state ideology, etc., are also important. Other factors, such as war, scientific invention and discovery, dissemination of intangible and tangible elements of culture through education and trade relations, and others, also promotes social change.
Last but not least, psychosocial factors, such as beliefs, vested interests, sacred values, attitudes, resistance to change and accept or entertain new things and wants to maintain the status quo is also very important force.


  1. I think sacred values and attitudes play a very important role in this. But nothing will change until and unless people change themselves first. I really hope they do.
