Abstract. Introduction. The realities of modern society reflect the demand of science to understand, explain and stage the structural transformations of the political process of a digital nature. Civic Internet activity is acquiring non-hierarchical forms and is ahead of technological practices used by the state. Introducing themselves into the modern political process, network organizational structures allow the formation of strong horizontal ties, acting as a tool for accumulating public opinion and mobilizing intellectual resources.

Methods and methodology. In this article, the features of digital citizenship are considered through the following theoretical and methodological foundations: digital citizenship in the concept of a network club; generational theory of being digital citizens; digital citizenship as a value system of user strategies; the administrative plane of obtaining the legal status of a citizen in the network.

Analysis. Synergy effects from joint activities of government, business and civil society institutions in the implementation of digital citizenship are extremely important. In connection with the creation of digital citizenship infrastructure in the Russian Federation, obtaining a digital profile of a citizen is of particular importance. Particular attention is paid to the risk factors for digital citizenship. The need to develop trust bridges between government and society, where co-management contributes to the formation of a safe and comfortable environment in physical and digital spaces, is argued.

Results. The authors proposed the concept of architecture for building digital citizenship, which consists of the phased implementation of digital services: 1) the introduction of platform solutions in the field of public administration: the provision of public services in digital format, the launch of the Public Services Portal of the Russian Federation; 2) an increase in the number of public services provided in the online format, the launch of the Unified Identification and Authentication System (ESIA); 3) the Russian Federations citizen’s digital profile creation, the launch of digital super services at the ESIA website, the introduction of an electronic passport of a citizen of the Russian Federation. It is concluded that the digital citizenship has new end-to-end communication capabilities, coupled with the extraterritoriality of processes. It is proved that digital citizenship is a fundamental right in the digital age. Digital literacy and digital security stand out as important elements of digital citizenship.
