Batanova Nataliia. Legal reform in Ukraine: conceptual problems and strategic directions of its provision

The article considers the strategic directions of legal reform, as well as the state of political support of the relevant processes. The need for thorough scientifi c knowledge of the process of legal reform in the Russian-Ukrainian war and postwar reconstruction of society and the state is emphasized.

It turns out that the main conceptual idea that should be the basis of the strategy of legal reform is the attitude to the human, the recognition of his highest value. It is noted that the strategic idea and the main direction of legal reform is to ensure the rule of law, which is the basis of a democratic society and modern constitutionalism.

In this context, emphasis is placed on the need for systemic changes in the legislation of Ukraine on human rights, local self-government, administrative and territorial organization, democracy, parliamentarism, justice, national security and defense.

Recommendations are made and relevant legislative proposals are substantiated. It is argued that the strategy of legal reform should focus on solving major systemic political and closely related (economic, social, cultural, informational, national security, etc.) issues in ensuring, implementing and protecting the principles of human dignity, freedom, justice, the rule of law, ensuring human rights, social, legal and democratic statehood and the separation of powers in the face of todays challenges.

It is argued that the strategy of legal reform should determine not only its purpose and principles, but also tactics of transformation in the legal system, vectors of movement, priorities and indicators of appropriate organizational, political, legal, scientifi c, informational and other conditions for modernizing legal system of Ukraine.

Key words: legal reform, strategy, Constitution, law, political system, legal system, rule of law.
