Concept of Soft State
Nobel Laureate Karl Gunnar Myrdal
identified what he called as societal indiscipline in the Asian States when
compared to the western countries. He identified this societal indiscipline as
the characteristics of soft State. Social indiscipline, corruption, and weak
law enforcement are the main characteristics of a soft State.
The post-colonial developing
States are generally categorized as soft States where their institutions of
governance are not fully developed. Our inability to adhere to standards and to
enforce law and maintain discipline makes our country as a soft State. A soft
State cannot advance further in refining its democratic values.
As a student identify the list of
social indiscipline and the ways of correcting them from your view.
