Abstract

The paper is based on the results the sociological monitoring How Are You Doing, Russia? and analyses the nature and content of the processes of social and political self-identification of Russian people. The results of studies demonstrate the trends in Russian peoples adaptability to the existing unstable social reality. The level of civil consciousness is also growing, which could give impetus to the further development of civil society. The growth of civil consciousness is happening against a background of aggravating socio-political contradictions, reduction of certain indicators of the state ensuring the norms of democratic life in society, and guarantees of human and civil rights and freedoms. The authors note the growing internal contradiction between Russian citizens awareness of their potentially significant role in the formation of a civil society and the practical inability to realize their socio_political potential in this direction.
