Civic Education and Citizenship in Modern Russian Society


Background/Objectives: The study of the problems related to the formation of citizenship in modern Russian society, one of the main forms of which is civic education, leads to growing cognitive interest. Methods/Statistical analysis: Within the framework of conceptual scientific thinking, the article deals with the problems of civic education as a way of forming the citizenship in Russian society with account to its socio-cultural and political specifics. Identity is seen as a result of the impact of information and cultural actualization. In the study of the identity, an important place is given to the analysis of its universal and particular traits. Findings: The authors reveal the binary nature of the legal consciousness of schoolchildren and contradictions existing between its cognitive, axiological and connotative components. In Russian society, on the one hand, there are two types of relationships between the man and the state, having formed two opposite faces of citizenship: official, allegiant and loyal citizenship and the oppositional, critical and rebellious one. On the other hand, there has been an active citizenship formed in Russia, which is competent, responsible and moral in terms of its social significance. Application/Improvements: The article is useful in terms of helping young people to learn how to live in the real Russian society, gain citizenship and civic subjectness.
