Ukrainian Civil Service: Implementation of the Public Administration Reform Strategy in Ukraine
Civil service as a public institution is called to increase the life quality standards for the population by delivery of high-quality administrative services, forming and ensuring the implementation of the public policy, supervision and control over legal compliance of public bodies’ and officials’ actions. However, in Ukraine it does not fully meet these objectives and requires substantial reforming. The relevance of this study lies in an active interest of philosophers, scientists, and lawyers in the research and definition of socio-economic and political turbulence in modern Ukraine caused by internal and external factors. The paper discusses the innovations of civil service in Ukraine, which are aimed at improving the performance and ensuring the quality of civil service. The results of this paper demonstrate that Ukraine has moved quite a distance from the Soviet legacy as far as civil service is concerned. Nevertheless, the country still has a lot to be done: these achievements must be supported by steady efforts so as to make them irreversible and to significantly increase the efficiency of public administration. In this connection, the civil service reform in Ukraine must be supported not only by policy measures that enhance the professionalism of civil servants, but also by the improvement of their public image. The practical importance is determined by the need to formulate priority ways of raising the country’s economic competitiveness and promoting social welfare.
