Abstract. This paper is a sociological study of geopolitical orientations and preferences of the youth in Tajikistan. The analysis uses concepts of interlinking of views about isolation/ integration and security. The authors examined attitudes of young peo-ple towards integration/ isolation, integration projects EEU, CSTO, SCO, and pro-spects for integration within the Central Asian region. The materials are based on a survey of 1000 young people aged 14 to 29, interviews and focus group discussions. The authors also examined geopolitical orientations and preferences of the youth of Tajikistan, reasons why young people sympathize with individual coun-tries, their assessments of an influence of certain countries on Tajikistan. The au-thors show that geopolitical orientations of the Tajik youth reflect an ongoing pro-cess of formation of the country's identity.
