Description: This publication studies social engineering and successful social innovations made by social engineers and defines functions of social innovations and their influences over the society. The necessity for social transformation is in the possibility of constructing new social relations and systems, where key actors operate more successfully and effectively. And we prove the potential of social innovations as a tool for social engineering, because social innovations make it possible to provide tangible economic growth and institutional capacity to respond to existing and new challenges. In the framework of the publication, we give own definitions for social engineering and social innovations. We completed the study on the sustainability of social structures and the changes in the existing social system that causes resistance of the elements of the system, which leads to a conflict in which the proposed changes can be “suppressed” by the existing status quo. The results show that “bottom-up” oriented (by their nature) social innovations serve as an effective tool of social engineering, as social system elements express much less resistance to initiatives that are not artificially implemented by social engineers. In addition, if the institutional changes are treated as “unfair”, “wrong”, “forced from above”, they do not harmonize the society and provoke resistance. The results also show that, historically, the large number of the most important social innovations resulted from random processes and events rather than from detailed planning by politicians or scientists. The findings are important for sociologists, policy makers and key government and NGO stakeholders in social sphere as they prove that social innovations may be organized and implemented institutionally. Various programs and projects may trigger social innovation and bring benefits on the local and international levels and to raise the level of social consciousness of the society.
