To a Question of New Strategies of Ethnocultural Policy of Modern States

Helen Karsanova

Abstract


Today, when practically everywhere the structure of modern national states loses the uniformity, and explosive forces of multiculturalism generate very serious political and sociocultural problems, the question foregrounds, whether it is possible to find an adequate equivalent to reach a unification of the civil and ethnic nation. This article is an attempt to answer this question.The author undertook comparative research of the German, French and British models of multiculturalism and came to a conclusion that in Europe it is possible to speak about multiculturalism with a considerable bit of convention. The source of modern interethnic problems is rather not in cultural, but in the social and economic spheres without solving which the preservation of the multicultural society can be put under doubts. For the Russian Federation such comparison is very important as multicultural strategy, having become part of ideological baggage of liberal reforming of the Russian society, is as well vulnerable for criticism.
