The focus of attention in this article falls on the activity of modern national associations using the example of the Republic of Bashkortostan. Representing the interests of the various national groups, they perform the role of important mediators between society and the government, contributing to social administration. In the Russian conditions, such associations as the civil society institutions, represent the strong political resource, which introduces certain contradiction into their work. The intended to express and defend the interest of their peoples, they conform to the appetence of the political elites and own ambitions, which leads to the loss of trust and discredits them as the effective mediators and actors of social governance. The article analyzes the work of associations of the largest ethnic groups in the Republic of Bashkortostan – Russian, Bashkir and Tatar. The history of the modern national movement is viewed within the framework of the three main stage since 1989, the most significant and impactful of which became the first one. Despite the decline in the activity of national movements, dilution of ethnic boundaries with the values of individualism, they retain their relevance for a variety of reasons. Among them are the contradictory conditions of globalization, results of the complicated and lingering modernization in Russia, problems of nation-building, weak positions of civic identity. The work of the national associations is a somewhat sensitive indicator of the state of civil society in the subjects of the Russian Federation. For the two decades, they amassed substantial experience, which remains insufficiently studied from the positive and constructive perspective that is essential for the effective implementation of the government’s national policy and social administration.
