The article is devoted to the analysis of components and manifestations of citizenship competence. It provides the rationale for the assumption that development of citizenship competence is determined by socio-psychological factors. The author identifies scientific approaches to the construction of different models of citizenship competence, which are based on 1) the list of competencies included into each component of a model; 2) the list of competence indicators; 3) identification of the competences which provide for the desired result on different stages of the performance of the citizen role. Citizenship competence is defined as an integrative characteristic of an individual, which is based on qualities (values, motivations, attitudes and identities) and qualification characteristics (ability and readiness) necessary and sufficient to perform the role of a citizen effectively. Citizenship competence can not be formed on the basis of knowledge and skills, even if they are of the highest level. It is determined primarily by socio-psychological factors. The idea about the that abilities and readiness to perform the role of a citizen are formed through development of a set of personal characteristics underlies the author’s approach to constructing the model of citizenship competence presented in the article. In other words, competencies of the secondary level (abilities and readiness) are provided for by the relevant configurations of competencies of the primary level actualized in different situations. The suggested model can be viewed as an ideal socio-psychological model of citizenship competence and at the same time it can be operationalized and empirically verified if indicators are determined. The author puts forward arguments to support the idea of the decisive impact of the social environment on citizenship competence development. The environment produces a certain citizenship discourse and supports (or restricts) practices, hence it determines the coordinates of the citizenship interaction space and sets up its norms and rules. So the environment formulates a social order for a certain format of citizenship competence. The author determines functions of the environment favorable for the development of citizenship competence, its features and ways of influence.
