Abstract.  The article deals with the collection of scientific and scientific-organizational activities of Stepan Pavliuk, a scientist-ethnologist, socio-cultural and political statesman, and the permanent director of the Institute of Ethnology of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine. His great work as an organizer and as a researcher of ethnic culture is presented in the structure of mo­dels — the most significant thematic-semantic areas of scientific effort or forms of organizational initiatives.

Among the priority scientific problems of the scientist is the problem of ethnogenesis, the complexes of customs in ethno-regions of Ukraine, the integrity and identity of Ukrainian culture.

Keywords: Stepan Pavliuk, folk studies, ethnology, ethnogenesis, academic science, ethnonational tradition, traditional culture, spiritual value system, scientific model, organizational model.
