Socioeconomic and Cultural Dimensions of National Identity in the Globalized World
The paper outlines the theoretical and methodological basis for determination of national identity and analyzes its main economic, social and cultural criteria. The paper also provides an inquiry into the prerequisites of autopoiesis of social groups, effective management of public resources and shaping social institutions for achieving common goals. Furthermore, the role of ethnic culture in state ideology usage, decreasing practice of state identity on ethnic basis is also discussed. The results of the survey concerning the main points of Ukrainians' national identity show decreasing biological and ethnic priorities in self-identification of young people and migrants and the increasing role of economic motives. The results of the survey also show a danger to national security due to increasingly popular ideas of cosmopolitanism and global citizenship. The paper also develops new approaches for national identity based not only on cultural and political, but also economic and social values. (original abstract)
