The Sense of Social Well-Being among Young People of the North Caucasus
Avksent'ev, V. A.; Gritsenko, G. D.; Maslova, T. F.
Russian Education and Society, v50 n10 p82-92 Oct 2008
Given the region's complex social and political situation, the authors advocate a need for understanding how the young people of the North Caucasus feel about themselves today, and their state of mind as they look to the immediate future. In the autumn of 2006 the Southern Science Center, Russian Academy of Sciences, and the Stavropol State University conducted the survey "The Sense of Social Well-being of the Population of the South of Russia Under the Conditions of the Reforms" as part of the Program of Fundamental Research of the Presidium of the Russian Academy of Sciences "The Adaptation of Peoples and Cultures to Changes in the Natural Environment and Social and Technogenic Transformations," and the subprogram for the South of Russia "Analysis and Modeling of Geopolitical, Social, and Economic Processes in a Multiethnic Macroregion." A questionnaire survey was carried out in four "key" territories selected on the basis of their federal status and the official results of their social and economic development. Relatively high indicators characterize Krasnodar krai as an administrative-territorial formation and the Republic of Dagestan as a national-territorial formation. Lower indicators characterized Stavropol krai and the Republic of Karachai-Cherkessia. Findings indicate that despite an unsatisfactory sense of social well-being on the part of a substantial portion of the young people of the North Caucasus region, particularly in Karachai-Cherkessia and Stavropol krai, most retain a desire and the drive to overcome their difficulties and to lay down a firm foundation for self-realization and self-development. (Contains 2 tables, 2 figures and 3 notes.)
