Summary/Abstract: The purpose of the article is to present the basic trends in the research of national identity in the perspective of developmental psychology. Two theoretically different perspectives are observed in the field. The first one is based on the cognitive development theory, while the second one — on social identity theory. An attempt is made to introduce a new domain of research of national identity development, which refers to the paradigm of psychosocial identity and its statuses, suggested by Erikson, Marcia and Adams. The analysis of the researches allows to describe the basic trajectories of national identity development during childhood and early adolescence as well as the factors influencing this process.
