Inmy topic, I intend to look at the way in which non-governmentalorganizations promote social reforms in Russia. In doing so, thetraditional concepts that held the society together will need anevaluation as well as the failure of past social movements. I intendto contemplate on the following questions
Do the social movements in Russia have the capacity to bring social reform?
What do the organizations have to do to enhance their outcomes?
Are the organizations in a position to enjoy public support?
Thesocial movements in Russia are well placed to gain the full capacityrequired for desirable outcomes. They can borrow a lot from thefailures of past social movements band build on them. To enhancetheir outcomes, they have to address the disintegrated traditions inthe society. The benchmark of their success will be that ability toaddress the problems that directly affect the people. They will thusenjoy the public support because of addressing current issues in thecommunity.
