AbstractThis article reflects the first results of the research project dedicated to the integration trajectories of the second generation migrants of the young adult age in Russia. Based on the series of the in-depth interviews with young adults of Armenian and Azerbaijani descent taken in Moscow it describes patterns of structural, social, cultural and identificational integration of these groups. It has been shown that members of this group are oriented toward higher education acquisition and after its completion are acquiring jobs on the mainstream labor market. However, their ethic self-identification is quite strong and their normative attitudes are sometimes marginal and inconsistent.
