Introduction. The authors investigate the issue of developing civil identity in Russian society. The aim of the research is to identify the characteristic features of developing civil (Russian) identity in migrant children while maintaining their ethnic identity.
Materials and Methods. The study involved a theoretical analysis of scholarly literature on the formation of civil (Russian) identity in migrant children while maintaining their ethnic identity. The authors employed the following theoretical research methods: comparison, generalization and system analysis.
Results. The results of the analysis of Russian and international literature on the research problem have been summarized. The authors have clarified the concepts of “civil identity”, “migrant children”, and “formation of civil identity in migrant children”. The factors contributing to the effective integration of migrant children and developing their civil identity are revealed. The most important approaches to the effective formation of civil identity in migrant children in Russian society are identified and characterized.
Conclusions. The analysis of scholarly literature presented in this review has revealed fragmentary results concerning formation of civil (Russian) identity in migrant children while preserving their ethnic identity.
