SUBURBS OF LARGE RUSSIAN FAR EASTERN CITIES: TERRITORIAL AND DEMOGRAPHIC DEVELOPMENT (CASE OF VLADIVOSTOK)
Vinokurova Anna Viktorovna, Candidate of sociological Sciences, Associate Professor of Department of Social Sciences of the Far Eastern Federal University Vladivostok, Russia
The research studies the problems of territorial and demographic development of suburbs of large Russian cities of the Far East. As the main object of research we selected Vladivostok city district and its suburban island territories, specifically-Russian island. The analysis of the studied problem was carried out on the basis of official statistics and sociological methods (questionnaire survey, narrative interview). The state and contradictions of modernization of Vladivostok island suburbs are considered in the context of the specifics of the geographical location, demo-graphic, social and cultural aspects of people’s life permanently living on Russian island. Territorial development of island suburban territories should be built not only on the basis of attracting attention to the Far East as a strategic and priority object for the development of socio-economic and socio – political relations, but also taking into account the «living» problems of the Far East residents — «islanders», whose range is quite wide and diverse.
