Abstract . The work is devoted to the analysis of an individual’s role and place in the acquisition of national identity markers which are offered by the surrounding social world as a set of available and interpreted cultural and historical coordinates. Acquiring these markers and their interpretations an individual passes through the stage of saving up the externally given knowledge about them and external identification. After that a critical process of their internalization or rejection begins. The high individual variability of this process and the variety of social experience in the modern world contribute to the ambiguity of the result of this process. Based on that, nation-building becomes less and less predictable and thus less effective.
Keywords: national identity, national identity markers, nation-building, internalization, collective narrative.
