A Swedish geographer maps different types of re-privatization and their effects on ethnic and socio-economic property patterns in Timişoara, a relatively large urban center (ca. 334,000 inhabitants) in western Romania in which pre-socialist ownership was predominantly multi-ethnic. The study is based on an extensive survey conducted in 2003 covering 524 blocks of apartments that were nationalized during the socialist period, with one apartment in each block being studied in detail. The article focuses special attention on the practice of the restitution of nationalized housing to former owners, in an analysis based on interviews with the local and regional officials in Timişoara.
