The wave of terrorist attacks that permeated the Western European countries in 2010’s, on the background of rapid transformations in ethnic and religious composition of the population in the region, once again testifies to the relevance of studying the processes taking place among the national minorities. Particular interest in this regard present the communities, that relatively recently have settled in the EU states, namely the African. An attempt is made to examine the Zimbabwean diaspora in modern Great Britain, meticulously researching the key immigration indexes and arrival channels of the Zimbabweans to the British Islands over the period of 1990 – 2000’s. The author analyses the aspects of inner development of the diaspora, its professional composition, problem of employments, as well as the role of African churches in everyday life of the newcomers. The Zimbabweans of Great Britain are one of the five numerous African diasporas in the country, with good language proficiency and relatively high level of education. Absolute majority of the newcomers from Zimbabwe are the migrants of first generation from the ethnic groups of Shona and Ndebele. The composition of the diaspora is characterized by the extreme heterogeneity with notable percentage of persons of uncertain migration status. Migrants from Zimbabwe stand out in their active social position and specific not fully formed identity based on the ethno-linguistic solidarity and traditional values. It is a notable fact that the British Zimbabweans retain close relation with the historical motherland, regularly transferring financial support to their relatives.

The object of this research is the process of social manipulation of the modern youth. The subject of this research is the political parties as the agents-subjects of the process of social manipulation of youth. Relevance of the topic is substantiated by the fact that in the conditions of systemic crisis of basic institutions and institutions of socialization of the modern Russian society, exists a pressing need in development of the effective mechanism of counteracting the manipulative influence of the various ambiguous subjects of social life upon the modern youth, which use it as an object of manipulations, testing the political and socio-psychological technologies and experiments. In this context, the systematization of corresponding scientific knowledge on the nature, essence and peculiarities of functionality of the political parties as an important socio-political institution, and simultaneously, an agent-subject of the process of social manipulation, manifests as a topical task faced by the modern Russian society and science. Analysis of the works of the classics of Russian and Western sociopolitical thought on the subject of research alongside the analysis of peculiarities of realization of the youth policy of political parties in the Russian Federation, have confirmed the relevance and novelty of the development of the indicated problematic, as well as an essential need in restricting the impact of political parties upon the political life of Russian society as one of the active subjects that produce continuous manipulative influence on the young generation.
