Abstract and Keywords
This chapter looks at institutional change in Siberia after the break-up of the former Soviet Union as a case study in Russian regional economic development. We use the general term Siberia to refer to the Asian territories of Russia included in the Siberian Federal District, the Far Eastern Federal District, and the energy-rich provinces of Yamal-Nenets and Khanty-Mansiysk. The statistical tables presented here replicate current Russian practice by differentiating the territories of the Far Eastern Federal District from the rest of Siberia, which is defined to include all of the Siberian Federal District plus Yamal-Nenets and Khanty-Mansiysk.
Judith Thornton is a Professor of Economics at the University of Washington, Seattle. Her research focuses on institutional change and regional economic development in Russia.
