The academically peer reviewed journal of “International journal of community development and management studies” is dedicated to examining social and economic development in diverse socio-economic environments. It explores the impact of cultural diversity and socio-economic complexity on community development, social policy, the research methodologies, the management sciences, entrepreneurial activities, communication and information theory and practice. The journal aims to help readers to develop and promote an understanding of the impact of culture, ethnicity, and class on the individual, the group, the organization on community socio-economic development. The mission of “International Journal of Community Development and Management Studies (IJCDMS)” is to provide a global platform for discussing and searching for the best methods/approaches for solving the problems of regional, national and global societies, with attention to the participation of cultural minorities and ethnic communities; finding novel ways to overcome gaps in ingenuity resulting from the accelerating rate of social, economic and environmental changes in global and regional spaces. In particular, faced with the rapid and unpredictable change in the world’s environments and socio-economic landscapes, it wishes to discuss how best to solve the problems arising from the increasing complexities and uncertainties introduced to the decision making matrices at the private, public and civic spheres; and more generally in the knowledge and belief spaces.
