The book results from the research on “Ethno-political factors of consolidation of the contemporary Ukrainian society” carried out by the scholars of the ethno-political department of the Ivan F. Kuras Institute of Political and Ethnic Studies in 2017-2019. It presents the detailed analysis of ethno-political factors of consolidation of the contemporary Ukrainian society, outlines the conceptual framework for the analysis, and examines the available relevant studies on the topic. The dynamics of changing ethno-cultural and social identities in the aftermath of the Revolution of Dignity is scrutinized as the most complex and controversial phenomenon. Substantial attention is paid to the language and ethno-confessional aspects of societal consolidation, politics of memory and actualization of public space. As a corollary, the conceptual vision of evolving Ukrainian society is introduced and discussed.

The study targets the prospective audience of scholars and teachers, students and journalists, civic activists and NGO leaders, as well as policy makers and civic servants who elaborate, legislate, and implement in practice the strategies of national consolidation.
