The Arctic goes urban
All over the world and also in the Arctic there is a clear tendency of urbanisation. Ownership to dwellings is also gradually changed from public to private. A housing market is established and Greenland is one example. In Russia, at the Kola-peninsula, the standard of flats in the Krutsjovsky styled blocks is increasing. The owners invest in their flats. A few people are building large villas while many are leaving the region all together. Jobs are fewer and the economical advantages of living in the High North are reduced. Attention is also paid to the growing housing-crisis in Iceland in the Journal of Nordregio no 2-2011, which has just been published. This will also be the last issue of this journal to be available in a printed format.
