Working paper

Семья, домохозяйство и сети межхозяйственных отношений в период преодоления экономических кризисов

Шик А.
Household studies is a research area which attracts much attention of economic sociologists at present. The author argues that the era of postcommunism forms a historic situation in which the importance of the household as an economic actor is increased. The paper is focused on the folowing issues: Why do households and inter-household networks strengthen while coping with economic crises? What strategies are pursued by the households in postcommunist economic crises? How do the households and their mutual safety nets survive and change over the time in a new institutional environment?
