Summary
This study sought to understand how various forms of social identity structured the articulation of social problems that accompanied the post-Soviet transition, and how the articulation of these social issues related to the formation of identities in post-Soviet society. These questions underlie the structure of the interviews conducted in Estonia, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan between 1996 and 1998. Interviews were conducted in two formats: either a focus group consisting of 6-8 individuals or an individual oral history interview. Thirty-six focus groups, evenly divided between the three countries, were conducted in 14 locations across the three countries. Groups were divided by gender and ethnicity/nationality. During the focus groups, participants were asked to describe positive and negative events of the previous 10 years and whether these changes specific groups of people more than others. Depending on the site, focus groups were sometimes asked to comment on specific issues. For example, the three locations chosen for their proximity to ecological crises (Sillamäe, Ivankiv, and Moynak) were asked about environmental problems. Focus group participants were asked to provide the names of prominent local people who could comment on the social issues discussed during the session. A total of 35 oral history interviews were conducted with prominent citizens in each location: 10 each in Estonia and Uzbekistan and 15 in Ukraine. The 2-hour interviews were designed to record information about the interviewee's personal background as well as their involvement in the changes occurring in the past 10 years, assessment of the current situation, and thoughts on the future directions of their countries
