The article deals with the issue of sociocultural distance arising between migrants and the sociocultural the environment of the host city. It has been found that at the present there is a negative tendency connected with incorporation of migrants from the urban environment into ethnic communities where their sociocultural practices acquire demonstrative character. These practices act as an irritant to the local population, forming a social distance and outlining identification of “friend-or-foe”. The specified situation has formed a research problem, the relevance of which can be explained by the necessity of developing social technologies aimed at reduction of socio-cultural distinctions between migrants and the city environment. According to the results of the theoretical analysis as well as the analysis of authors’ research, a number of tactical social tools, capable of providing the start of the first stage of socio-cultural rapprochement, that is reduction of social distance, were proposed. Also, the authors’ vision of a urban environment model in a sociocultural aspect is offered; the place of each of its participants in the process of sociocultural interaction is specified. The authors point out the necessity of direct participation of municipalities in solving the problem of the migration inflow because of its potential danger for the effective development of the social city environment. The authors state that one of the problems complicating integration of migrants into the socio-cultural environment of the city is their concentration around the “core” of the community which sets the behavioral norms and values. The paper contains practical instructions for the concepts of events and measures aimed at reducing the cultural distance and the influence of the social “core” of the migrant environment on the behavioral practices of migrants.
