Abstract

This paper maps and analyses ethnic and socio-economic residential segregation in two small post-Soviet mining and enrichment cities in Eastern Kazakhstan, Leninogorsk and Zyryanovsk. The study is based on data collected by the author in collaboration with the Eastern Kazakhstan oblast' statistical authority in an extensive questionnaire survey carried out during January 2001. The paper investigates the linkages between the physical spatial structure of small post-Soviet cities and the socio-spatial landscape that has unfolded in their context, and attempts to identify the principal factors that underlie the observed segregation patterns.
