Abstract

It has been established that the implementation of good governance according to the standards of local and regional democracy of the EU is carried out in accordance with the Strategy for Innovation and Good Governance at Local Level, which provides for the implementation of such documents of the European Union as, in particular: European Outline Convention on Transfrontier Co-operation between Territorial Communities or Authorities; European Charter of Local Self Government; Convention on the Participation of Foreigners in Public Life at Local Level; Additional Protocol to the European Outline Convention on Transfrontier Co-operation between Territorial Communities or Authorities; Protocol No. 2 to the European Outline Convention on Transfrontier Co-operation between Territorial Communities or Authorities concerning interterritorial co-operation; Protocol No. 3 to the European Outline Convention on Transfrontier Co-operation between Territorial Communities or Authorities concerning Euroregional Co-operation Groupings (ECGs); Additional Protocol to the European Charter of Local Self-Government on the right to participate in the affairs of a local authority.Also, the Standards for Local and Regional Democracy provided for in the Innovation and Good Governance Strategy for the implementation of good governance in the EU national, regional and local governance system include the Guidelines for Democracy of Participation, in particular the Guidelines for Citizens Participation in Political Decision Making and Recommendations of the Committee of Ministers to member states.According to the results of the analysis, it was found that in Ukraine almost all Council of Europe documents on the implementation of good governance according to the standards of local and regional democracy of the EU were ratified and entered into force. Which, in turn, is an organizational and legal mechanism for introducing good governance according to the standards of local and regional democracy of the EU in Ukraine.
