Organization and Legal Support of Communication Relations in the Field of Public Administration in Ukraine

Keywords: public administration, organizational and legal basis, democracy, communication relations, civil society


The article discusses a relevant topic, which is the legal support of communication relations in the field of public administration. The promotion of democracy and the rule of law requires a continuous, prompt and equal dialogue between citizens and the main institutions of civil society. Attributive factors and system-forming factors are theoretically substantiated and separated. In particular, the following attributive factors are highlighted: publicity, openness, democracy. Their essence is that thanks to them, all citizens should be guaranteed equal rights and appropriate levers for the transformation of state power into a democratic environment of self-control of organizations of society and people. System-forming factors are considered in the context of appropriate availability of a regulatory framework; the influence of public administration entities in various ways on the development and democratic functioning of public administration; a well-established system of communication between the subjects and the objects of public administration; professional and cultural training of both government officials and community leaders and activists. The basic regulatory acts that contribute to the formation of communication relations of public administration entities in Ukraine are analyzed, the need for the development of “subject-subjective” relations is determined, which contributes to obtaining effective and efficient indicators in the socio-economic, political spheres. Although the legal field is quite extensive and in practice there are conciliatory and reordination administrative and legal relations, the development of civil society in Ukraine does not fully comply with global trends. Deficiencies in the legal regulation of communication relations in the field of public administration are revealed. It is proved that in the current legislative and regulatory acts the main focus is on the declaration of the rights of citizens, and not the creation of effective guarantees for their practical implementation. Conclusions are developed to overcome the identified shortcomings.
