Latvia is multi-ethnic state, and under modern social political moves towards the development of European citizenship it is important to study the most significant determinants of personality in inter-ethnic relations, foster tolerance, international co-operation and awareness of European identity. This paper reports a study of the significance of personal ethnic and civic identity in the formation of inter-cultural communicative competence and their interrelations with age, gender and educational level.
