TRANSFORMATION OF THE PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION SYSTEM OF UKRAINE DURING DECENTRALISATION
The relevance of this study is conditioned upon the fact that decentralisation of the public administration system cannot be assessed separately from the broader process of political reforms, including reforms of the judicial system, civil service, and strategic priorities. The purpose of this paper is to investigate the results of the decentralisation reform, analyse their consequences, identify achievements and comprehend the possibilities of further transformation of the public administration system in Ukraine and make recommendations on ensuring the most efficient operation of the public administration system in the new conditions. The study employs general theoretical and special research methods, namely the dialectical method of scientific cognition, which allowed tracing the current trends in the transformational development of the Ukrainian public administration system in the context of decentralisation, establishing the conformity of the reforms carried out with the European principles of public administration. This paper also involved the use of historical and logical methods, a systematic approach and comparative legal analysis. The study presents an analysis of the transformation of the public administration systemof Ukraine in the context of decentralisation and the simultaneous implementation of numerous important reforms affecting key areas of public life. The analysis allowed identifying the gaps in legal support and shortcomings in the practical implementation of a substantial transformation of the public administration system in the context of decentralisation, which allowed formulating and justifying recommendations for politicians in Ukraine.
