Identity Formation and Social Issues in Estonia, Ukraine and Uzbekistan

A two year, Ford Foundation sponsored training and research project based on three non-Russian republics of the former Soviet Union -- Estonia, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan

Through the support of a grant from the Ford Foundation, the University of Michigan Center for Russian and East European Studies provided training in oral history and focus group methods to University of Michigan (U-M) faculty, graduate students and their counterparts in the three former republics. These methods were used to carry out collaborative research on the relationship between social identity and the articulation of social issues that accompany the post-Soviet transition.
