All spheres of social life, including political, economic, and cultural are affected by globalization. Global processes have a direct impact upon the life of an individual: change his living conditions, communication with other members of the community, his identity. On one hand, an individual appears to be involved into the global space, while on the other – remains to be a member f the local territorial community, supporting its integrity and distinctness. In the majority of cases, an individual openly demonstrates his identity in the crisis moments, for example, when occurs the danger of transformation or even destruction of the community. The article represents an abstract review of the literature on the topic of globalization and transformation of identity under the global circumstances. The main conclusion consists in the statement that the presence of territorial identity among the majority of community members, in other words, the understanding by the majority of members of their affiliation to such, testifies to the manifestation of certain social processes, based on which an assumption can be made about the preservation of integrity of this local territorial community alongside the existence of the reverse to global processes within. These two vectors are the result of one and the same social process – strengthening of the local territorial community as such. Therefore, the establishment and/or subsequent preservation of the integrity of local territorial community is an alternative to the global processes that take place in the world.
