The choice of this or that place for immigration is caused not only by social and economic problems, but also by the ecological situation in the regions of exit and enter of migrants. The article presents a comparative analysis of scientific approaches to the understanding of the essence and content of the concepts “environmental security”, “migration” and «migration processes». The information base are the materials of the Federal State Statistics Service of Russia on population migration, results of researches by the Russian Public Opinion Research Center (VCIOM). The analysis of the results of monitoring reflecting the dynamics of changes in the assessments of the environmental situation in the country in recent years. In 2017, the number of migrants to Russia was over 589 033 people. Most of them came from CIS countries (Ukraine — 150 182 people, Kazakhstan — 71 680, Uzbekistan — 64 073, Tajikistan — 63 467). In six regions of Russia with different ethnic structure we realized sociological research (2018) among migrants (n = 334). The analysis of the migration situation in the regions is carried out and the regression model of the factors of security is constructed. On the basis of a sociological research conducted the Altai State University in 2018 (n = 600), the analysis of the ecological situation in the Russian regions is carried out and the factor structure of ecological risks is constructed.</p> С.

Several important conclusions are made on the results of the research, concerning the activity of ethnic cultural organizations in conditions, defined by the actual state of inter-ethnic relations in the region, the level of trust towards activity of civil society structures, efficacy of State policy on nationalities. The analysis of institutional conditions of inter-ethnic relations, necessary for effective realization of goals of ethnic cultural NGOs in the region, most of which demonstrate high level of satisfaction, is likewise presented. It was found that the efficacy of autonomous ethnic cultural organizations (AECO) is largely depends on social cohesion and readiness of people to organize themselves in defense of their ethno-cultural interests. The results will be useful for elaboration of effective measures of forming positive inter-ethnic relations in the region.</p> А. С. Жанбосинова С. Г. Максимова Д. А.

Being mostly under external impact in the process of upbringing and forming, the younger generation (including children, adolescents, youth) faces a lot of risks and threats in the modern society, which can have negative consequences. The existing social differentiation, the inequality among the younger generation, the lack of social elevator mechanisms, the deepening contradictions in the sphere of labor and employment, the unfavorable information and socialization environment in general — forms the younger generation, a large number of which representatives choose survival life strategy. Children and young people do not possess equal opportunities for self-realization, self-determination, self-identification in terms of dichotomy of young people on successful and unsuccessful, gifted and ordinary ones. Thus, socially vulnerable (or even unprotected) young generation, unlike gifted, talented children and young people, becomes potentially such a group where protest moods can be formed, as well as dissatisfaction because of injustice in relation to oneself. It is this category that becomes a risk group, potentially prone to deviant, delinquent behavior, realizing its dissatisfaction in practice. Thus, according to the researcher, paying special attention to socially vulnerable youth becomes a factor of state and national security.</p> Р. Х.

The aim of the study is to clarify the attitude of adolescents to health care, bad habits and awareness of the role of adolescents in solving these problems. The results of the survey clearly showed that adolescents have low levels ofhealth. At the same time, the survey participants demonstrated a tendency to drink alcohol and smoke. The author comes to the conclusion that it is necessary to strengthen protection of health of teenagers and prevention of harmful habits in their environment due to the complex approach with participation of the state, public organizations, educational institutions, and also families.</p> Е.

A general accent was made on the conceptualization of priorities and detections of the state language policy of contemporary Russia. To illustrate the process, a special attention is paid to the analysis of messages from the President, his program statements on the given theme, and basic political-doctrinal document of the country. Authors considered strategic priories, reflected in doctrinal documents of the state, such as Russian Schools Abroad Concept Document and the Concept of state support policy and promotion of the Russian language abroad as bases for humanitarian cooperation. Analysis of basic documents of the country demonstrated the complicity and multidimensionality of the phenomenon of the State language policy, it covers the multiple spheres of public life and directions of activity of the State, it has complex and comprehensive influence in contemporary conditions.&nbsp;</p> О.

Behavioral practices are realized on concrete territories, and, thus, have territorial specificity. As scholars note, territorial behavior has integrative character, it forms a system of social relations, where social capital of territorial community is created. The concept of social capital, which has become very popular at the beginning of the present century, offers considerable potential for studying the system of social relations in different spheres of social life. This concept makes it possible to identify the influence of social capital on the choice of socio-economic behavior patterns and on the anchoring of effective practices. The empirical basis was represented by the results of sociological survey, conducted by specialists from the Vologda Research Center in June 2017 in Vologda, Cherepovets and Pskov with representative quota sample (n=900). Methodical goals, realized during the research, included the adjustment of the indicator model for social capital measurement, the correction of research instruments. Further analysis was made by means of statistical procedures and methods integrated in the SPSS package, including correlation and factor analysis. The results obtained revealed groups of social capital holders, bonding and bridging, a model of different types of social capital was elaborated. The identified groups differ considerably by basic indicators, such as trust, engagement, and attitudes. The division into groups by level of social capital made it possible to analyze its impact on socio-economic attitudes of population. The research has demonstrated existing relationship between the level of accumulated capital and innovative economic behavioral practices, economic optimism/pessimism, trust towards economic institutions. The results give possibility to formulate tasks for further research, including comparative analysis of social capital characteristics among different territorial communities, the analysis of the potential for community cooperation, based on trust. The research has confirmed heuristic opportunities of the social capital concept.</p> Т. А.

С этого периода на вариативной основе (прямые выборы или на конкурсной основе) регионы самостоятельно определяют принципы назначения руководителя муниципалитета. Данная возможность закреплена ФЗ №131 «Об общих принципах организации местного самоуправления в РФ». При изучении данного нововведения в регионах Сибири и Дальнего Востока выяснилось, что преобладающей процедурой назначения на должность в муниципалитетах первого уровня стала конкурсная процедура, а не прямые выборы. В тоже время в регионах применение прямых выборов для избрания глав муниципальных образований имеет разный масштаб.</p> А. В.

A crime is much easier to prevent than to fight further with the consequences of its commission. A special place is occupied by the crime of a terrorist nature. It has become a global threat in the modern conditions of the world community. Countering this crime is complicated by the problem of migration. Associated with a series of ongoing military conflicts in the Middle East, migration creates fertile ground for the growth of crime of extremist and terrorist orientation. For the Russian Federation, since the collapse of the USSR, migration from the Central Asian republics is of particular importance. These republics often accept on their territory members of terrorist organizations, which then enter the territory of Russia. The article is devoted to a promising method of searching for potential terrorists among migrants. Geographic profiling allows you to make the preventive search for potential terrorists and extremists more targeted.</p> Е. А. Куликов В. А. Мазуров М.
