2003 (English)In: Building and Re-building Sustainable Communities: Reports from the Superbs project / [ed] Lars Rydén, Uppsala: Baltic University Press , 2003, 1, 51-56 p.Chapter in book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
The district of Jaamamõisa, a former housing area for Soviet military forces at Raadi military air base, has an aging and decreasing population (from about 4,000 to 3,000) due to the emigration from Estonia in the early 1990s, especially by people of ethnic russian origin. In the neighbourhood, 29% of the population were ethnic estonians. Jaamamõisa's development potential is discussed in terms of its advantageous location in the town structure. But Jaamamõisa may also turn into a ghetto and specific attention should be paid to the particular socio-ethnic composition of the area.
