Abstract

In the context of globalization, intensification of international migration, growth of cross-cultural and cross-civilizational communications, there is an increase of the importance of socio-political and legal mechanisms aimed at supporting the stability of states as stable communities of people with similar sociocultural values and world view, and national identity of citizens is an important component of it. As a natural result, there is a rise of a need to reconsider the constitutional legislation of modern states from the standpoint of studying their constitutional identity as a link between the state order and political and legal institutions with the cultural context within which they appear and develop, as well as corresponding with identities, among which – national, religious and ideological ones. In complex multi-religious and multinational states, the main form of socio-political consolidation of society is the civil-legal understanding of a nation as a state — the community of its members. In order to ensure the social and political security of the state, it is essential to have a consensus in the society on a number of issues that are most significant for its members. State information and legal policy is key to formulating and maintaining public consensus. The state identity policy is fixed in the legislation of the countries of the world in different ways. Depending on a particular state, one can pay more or less attention to this issue in regulatory acts of different levels.
