Cover Page

Abstract


The article is devoted to the problem of interaction and mutual influence between modernization processes in contemporary Russian society and traditional social institutions of some Nations of Russian Federation. No doubt modernization and tradition oppose each other, but the nature of their interaction seems much more difficult and diverse than simple antagonism. The institutes of traditional society and other elements of patriarchal social order implement the important function of social regulation. Also these institutions reduce contradictions and resolve conflicts, they contribute the establishing and maintaining of the dialogue between the public authorities and society. According to the author, the traditional social institutions are to be considered not as an obstacle in the way of progress, but as an important regulatory and adaptive mechanism. These issues are considered by the examples of the nations of the Northern Caucasus and some other regions of Russian Federation.
