[1] Shastitko A., Fatikhova A. Monotowns: A quantitative analysis // Baltic Region. — 2016. — no. 2. — P. 4–19. The authors propose an empirical analysis of the current situation in monotowns. The study questions the perceived seriousness of the 'monotown problem' as well as the actual challenges it presents. The authors use cluster analysis to divide monotowns into groups for further structural comparison. Since structural differences in the available databases limit the possibilities of empirical analysis, alternative approaches are required; the authors consider possible reasons for the limitations identified. Special attention is paid to the monotowns that have been granted the status of advanced development territories. Comparative analysis makes it possible to study their general characteristics and socioeconomic indicators. The authors apply the theory of opportunistic behaviour to describe potential problems caused by the lack of unified criteria for granting monotowns the status of advanced development territories. The article identifies the main stakeholders and the nature of their interaction; it describes a conceptual model built on the principal-agent interactions, and draws a possible scenario of mutually beneficial cooperation. The solution to the principal-agent problem suggested in the article contributes to the development of an alternative approach to the current situation and a rational approach to overcoming the 'monotown problem'.
