Social issues are matters that can be explained only by factors outside an individual’s control and immediate social environment. They usually concern more than a single individual and affect many individuals in a society. Common social issues include poverty, violence, justice, human rights (suppression of), equality (or discrimination), crimes, and usually revolve around conflicting viewpoints and tensions between people who take different stances.
