Imbalanced regional development within countries

During the course of any social transformation process, disparities between regions may emerge, or a long standing situation may be accentuated. Such disparities are found both among different countries at the international level, and among different regions within the same country. The inter-regional differences may occur in regard to such important needs as food, health, habitation, education, social mobility, administrative services and political representation. Many of these disparities have adverse consequences for the further process of local and global social transformation.
