Centrally planned change [r]:

A general approach to preparing a set of decisions for action in the future meeting two characteristics: 1) Organized by a central government or authority (e.g., nation state) and 2) Intending to bring about social change. E.g., proposal and adoption of the 14th and 15th Amendments to the U.S. Constitution, the Supreme Court decision in Brown v. Board of Education (1954), and the Civil Rights Acts of 1964 and 1965 were all parts of a decades-long effort at centrally planned change.
