The Ph.D. thesis, based on theoretical and methodological resources of sociology and associated disciplines, suggests the theoretical model, which allows to understand the phenomenon of ethnic boundaries, as well as the methodology of empirical research of it. The author defines ethnic boundaries as a social fact, which emerges as a result of classification of individuals based on ethnic categories. These categories are, in turn, associated with a set of attributes, norms and practices. All this is mundanely re-defined in the course of institutionalized or non-institutionalized interactions between people.
