Obstacles to Social Development.

Social development represents changes in structure and framework of the society that help it to better realize aims and objectives. Development can be defined as an upward ascending movement featuring greater levels of energy, efficiency, quality, productivity, complexity, comprehension, creativity, mastery, enjoyment and accomplishment. It is a process of social change, not merely a set of policies and programs instituted for some specific results. Social development aims to improve the well-being of every individual in the society so they can reach their full potentials. Social development faces a number of obstacles that prevent it from achieving its main and subsidiary objectives, as do all other developmental aspects. The following points are an overview of these obstacles:

Cultural Obstacles:

Such as outdated social stereotypical views that inhibit any development and stand in face of modernization and prosperity.

Administrative Obstacles:

They are a set of developmental and administrative problems caused by senior officials and decision-makers in the state, such as focusing on their personal interests rather than the state’s interests, corruption, nepotism, and embezzlement at the expense of the people interest, and comprehensive and sustainable development.

Planning Obstacles:

Which is the lack of participation of staff in the process of development planning. i.e. plans are ready to be implemented without discussion in a bureaucratic manner, in addition to weak planning culture of those responsible for development processes.

Political Obstacles:

Lack of political freedom in addition to very little decision-making power along with increasing changes at all levels, including political, social, economic, technical and technological.

Economical Obstacles:

Internal economic instability, as well as the impact of the global economy and scarcity of resources, which is one of the main obstacles to social and sustainable development.
