Abstract

The aim of the article: To define and research on achievements and remain difficulties of decentralization of power issues in Ukraine for the period of 2014 - 2020. Topicality: Decentralization does not imply single reform, it comprises a set of measures applied to the transformation of Public Administration, which have been launched and implemented systematically and gradually. Decentralization is rightly regarded to be one of the most successful directions of reforms in Ukraine.Research outcomes: The authors have analysed a process of decentralization and defined pros and cons of this set of reforms. The authors considered a growth of local budgets, a completion of local communities’ amalgamation, new administrative division of Ukraine, stimulation of economic activity on the local level to be the advantages.At the same time, lack of Constitutional reform concerning the main outputs of the decentralization legal finalization, unresolved issues of legal regulation of land ownership, certain tensions of Center – periphery, as well as politicizing of local Self-government institutes have been outlined as the key challenges of the decentralization. Potential threats have also been represented with the procedures of villagers’ headmen appointment and certain trends towards formation of “enclaves” of amalgamated communities with the same ethic and linguistic parameters. Authors have also concluded the article with some practical recommendations, addressed to Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine and Cabinet of Ministers. They would help with resolving some remaining problems of the decentralization process.
