General Human Development Report Latvia 1995
The Latvia Human Development Report 1995 provides an inventory of the situation regarding social development in Latvia and a basis for monitoring subsequent progress. The report focuses on two sets of issues that pose particular challenges for human development in Latvia: social integration and social stress. In the realm of social integration, the report devotes separate chapters to the development of a multi-ethnic society, the position of marginal/vulnerable groups, the changing status of women, and the emergence of civil society. Under the rubric of social stress, the report has chapters on the human costs of rising poverty, growing unemployment, deteriorating public health, and burgeoning crime.
