Example text

10 Staraya Russa Another example of a town with good performance assessed on the criteria of coordination, policy formulation, data gathering and, most importantly, policy innovations, is Staraya Russa. The town has not suffered from social problems on the scale of Russia’s other more depressed provincial towns. However, post-Soviet economic restructuring resulted in lay-offs and related social problems, such as poverty, chronic unemployment, alcoholism, abandoned or abused children and family violence.

The staff refers to this as reydy or raids. These raids are conducted once a week, and involve conversations with neighbours, family members and teachers, as well as local government district administrators. In addition to having a prophylactic intent, the raids are also meant to serve remote localities, whose residents would otherwise have trouble finding transport and money to travel to Staraya Russa, where most of the social facilities are located. The raids, as well as other prophylactic measures, are carried out in cooperation with the police, the local foster home and other concerned institutions.

If need be’, she maintained, ‘I will personally go to Moscow’. Accordingly, Staraya Russa has been successful in winning many of the federal social targeted grants, which came in the form of equipment for the local social facilities. It also won a Soros Foundation grant to help equip the local social college. Funding is also obtained from local entrepreneurs or ‘philanthropists’ who are made to feel that contributing to the city’s social well being helps build a greater civic consciousness and a sense of responsibility for the locality.
