Abstract

The article seeks to elucidate some controversial problems of the formation of both civic and national self-consciousness within the framework of the analysis of the politics of identity and citizenship which has assumed increasing importance in Western and Eastern European countries.

The central task, therefore, is to analyze the evolution of various conceptions of citizenship in the light of historical experience, continuity and change as like as the process of transformation of the model of political education emerging within the framework of the liberal political culture of the 19th century and continuing to exert a great impact on the development of political discourse in the modern world. Special attention is given to the comparative analysis of the models of civic and national identity in the USA, Western and Eastern Europe, including post-communist Russia. Th
