Abstract

The decline of forest sector production in Russia combined with poorly prepared decentralization and liberalization measures have led to a degeneration of the social status of people and communities whose living depended on the sector. Unemployment and the impoverishment of living conditions have brought about wide-spread confusion and ill-feelings. This has laid the ground for lack of motivation and social tension within the effected communities.
