Abstract: In the age of globalization scientific research on national identities has not lost its relevance. The ongoing research project presented in this special issue aims at comparing the transformation of Lithuanian and Belorussian national identities in the context of Euro-integration. Although for the major part Lithuania and Belarus share the same history, because of interwar statehood Lithuanian identity has had more favourable conditions for development than Belorussian identity. After the two countries gained their independence in the 1990s they arguably chose quite different paths of identity building: whereas the basis of Belorussian identity has primarily been their historical teritory, a certain social strata and belief system, the major markers of Lithuanian identity are Lithuanian languange, ethnicity and Catholicism. Socialization within the EU structures has also had a significant impact on the Lithuanian identity in terms of adopting the European values and norms whereas independent Belarus mostly seeks integration with the post-Soviet space.
