Latvia

The Republic of Latvia is a North European neighbor of the Russian Federation.

Contributors typically seek answers to Latvia's participation in the European Union; and response to the Soviet legacy of economic underdevelopment, educational underachievement, large scale indebtedness, Russian dominated urban life, and school closings.
