Assessing senses of place, mobility and viability in industrial northern communities

Project Details


The project undertook a comparative analysis of mobility and settlement in and around communities of industrial workers in Northwest Russia/Siberia.

The project contributed to theoretical research on senses of place and the social fabric of communities. The main attention was devoted to assessing community resilience, i.e. under which circumstances northern communities are viable enough to stay together and strive to persist, and on the other hand, which factors lead to disintegration and outmigration of their residents.
