2003 (English)In: Building and Re-building Sustainable Communities: Reports from the Superbs project / [ed] Lars Rydén, Uppsala: Baltic University Press , 2003, 1, 35-43 p.Chapter in book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
Post-socialist cities are often characterised by large suburban, densely developed areas for manufacturing industry on the periphery, hardly maintained traditionally important inner city areas, and a deteriorating ring of housing between them. Implementing sustainable development and participatory planning practices in the redevelopment of these areas has become a challenge for planners in the former command economies. In the study, the role of public and private agents in promoting rehabilitation and gentrification in the rundown areas in Tartu are looked at.
