Round Table
Dialectics of the Development of Russian Towns: Unity and Struggle of Stakeholders


Towns, despite their small size, are the platforms for cooperation and clash between various development stakeholders: traditional crafts and modern industry, traditional lifestyle and high-speed urbanization, tourist-cultural and industrial approaches to development. Russian towns, where almost 25 % of Russia’s population lives, can develop in the context of consensus and synergy of various local and federal stakeholders.
