Aim. To analyze socio-political and religious aspects of transformation of the conflict in Dagestan after 1999 and the reaction of the Dagestani population to it.

Methodology. In order to examine the peculiarities of the conflict transformation the author uses historical comparative method, sociological approach, and subject analysis of local mass media materials.

Results demonstrate the necessity of wider consolidation of the Dagestani society for resolving the conflict, the consequences of which are still seen nowadays in a form of the clash of numerous interests and the extremism threat.

Research implications It is concluded that in order to overcome the current conflict situation in the republic, a commensurate response is needed, coming from the very depths of public consciousness and the historical memory of the Dagestan peoples, which the bureaucratic apparatus is not capable of generating. The results of the study show that only the Dagestani society itself should and is capable of preparing such a response to the challenges emanating from the radical camp.

Key words

religious conflict, political conflict, Republic of Dagestan, civil society, ethnic groups, extremism
