Social conditions

Social conditions

Social conditions or structure is a widely use expression. In social sciences is is referred as the society arrangement. The usage of the - social structure expression has changed continuously over time, the analysis of the different levels of sociology reflect this. In macro level it means larger social-economic dispersion ( e.g. grade structure, sectoral profile), social institutions, or other different contiguities. On field level it refers to the social network relations of individuals or organisations. The regulative or just restrictionary nature of the administration and jurisdiction of a certain esplanade reveal itself here. On micro-level now it is the values, morals, identities approved by local (regional) society.

Social structure is the relation system among divergent social groups. Social structure influencing factors are : economic system, legal-, political- and cultural system. Family religion, law , economy and qualification all may be the foundation for stratification In our event the importance of social network deserve serious attention, because social cohesion (identity, economic and social activeness, readiness to make initiatives) , and economic partnership network mean a prosperous condition from respect of that prosperity.

The social system as a local resource:

  • Ownership: the characteristic structure of society and the economy, so it is the feature of function and potential of available geographical space in a given moment.

  • Degree of democracy: the degree of democracy is determined by the development of political rights and civil liberties. Political rights include the free and general elections, the existence of an electoral law, right of free establishment of political parties, as for civil liberties: the right of assembly, the freedom of opinion-making, respect for the law and human rights, personal autonomy and economic rights.

  • Pluralism:The pluralism is one of the basic value and characteristic of the democratic political system. The possibility and neutrality of the existence of several different political ambitions at the same time, which means competing diversity of interests, values, beliefs, ideologies, parties and institutions. The pluralism expresses the corresponding distribution of the natural fragmentation of society and political power, so it is a status in which the power and influence have several number of sources. Verifiability and accountability is one of the main achievements of plurality. None of the social/political segments can dominate over the other, build on the principles of the power and horizontal functions(partnership).

  • Subsidiary: The principle of subsidiary is intended to ensure that decision-making and European initiatives (projects) to be done as close as possible to the citizens, so they reach the citizens, they feel that they have value.

  • Solidarity: The local community stands for unity and an opportunity to catch up, inclusive nature, however it expects to observe their rights and duties from all segments of society. The appearance of any adverse discrimination, is making neither positive nor negative sense, as it is disruptive for the community.

  • Development objectives and value systems: The all time society has the development needs and connected to the implementation of competency, which strengthens the coherence of the region. The individual initiative capability and the „aptitude „ of rural regions of the EU Member States, sadly the priorities of general community policy and the related resources are capable of forming regions only with spending the development money and not because the local society has established goals with itself.
