Public administration: does it need reshuffling?

As you know, one of the key requirements of the Maidan in 2014 and entire Ukrainian society demanding reforms was the reshuffling of the system of governance. In part, this has already happened, Ukraine has returned to the Constitution of 2004, but, according to experts, the problems are still there. Moreover, it didnt suffice to only juridically return to the old system of governance, because the new government goes on tipping the scales of full powers, playing its own games hated by people. It has become apparent that the redistribution of powers at the very top makes it impossible for Ukraine to get out of the crisis. It is high time for Ukraine to zero in on reforms, including the reshuffling of administration.

We continue to be captives of totalitarian institutional model. This applies to all without exception: government, local self-government, judiciary, legislature, and certain segments of human rights to name a few. That is, in some sectors our management models acquired new forms, but essentially we continue to practice the Soviet totalitarian model of governance.

"I cannot say that the demands of Maidan to change the power system have begun to be implemented. In fact, all public authorities who have to implement these reforms either mimic them, or do nothing at all. "

Mykhailo Minakov, Ph.D., Director of the Quality Policy Fund, Associate Professor of Philosophy and Religious Studies of the National University "Kyiv-Mohyla Academy"

After and partly because of Maidan 2014, we have a contradictory situation of reconstruction of consolidated power and efforts to consolidate it and win. The reform of Public administration and implementation of the logic of public administration and democratic accountability during the crisis of sovereignty, war and recession is a hopeless job.

You may have noted that Poroshenko and Groisman have stopped talking about decentralization. Everything has ended in talk. It was nothing but hot air. The system cannot be reformed, because the interests of the top men are short-term only; that is, they tend only to bleed the economy and ensure their future. They`ve never relied on long-term projects. Any attempt to change needs time in the first place; they have no time to wait.

Serhiy Taran, CEO of the Center for Sociological and Political Studies "Sotsiovymir", Director of the International Institute for Democracy

A lot of countries succeeded due to the powerful chain of command. Moreover, in case of reforms, the powerful chain of command is indispensable. But not its very existence but its goal is of primary importance: will it pursue reforms or personal enrichment, as it was under Yanukovych. And, secondly, the way it is formed: will it be democratic or undemocratic government.

Andriy Yeremenko, founder of the research ACTIVE GROUP Co.

Ukraine needs to delegate responsibilities down to the regions. It is not much of a show now. The optimal balance may be as follows: Kyiv controls army, tax and customs policy. It also partially controls law enforcement and judicial systems. The rest goes down to the regions. The role of civil society will exactly satisfy the expectations and possibilities of the civil society. That is, if it is able to fully control the state, then it will do it. But it may well be that its role will increase, but still remain a controlling and sometimes only advisory one.

Olexandr Stehniy, Executive Director of the Center for Social and Marketing Research "SOCIS", Doctor of Social Sciences

Before the bloody events on the Maidan in winter 2014, we put the question: if the local or public authorities violate the laws, will you undertake something? There were disappointing data, when the vast majority recognized that it got no gumption, but now we witness a weak progress. There arises the desire for self-organization and the desire to change something is being spread.

Oleg Soskin, Director of the Institute of Societal Transformation

There is only one way to break vertical management: it is necessary to dissolve regional and oblast administrations. Why did we fail at transforming our country? Because the principle of centralization was written down in the Constitution. Otherwise we would have long managed to break the oligarchy. And since it is written down, it is necessary to amend the Constitution. To amend the Constitution, we need power; the reform were never powerful enough to change the Constitution. But so far everything looks like nothing can be done. At least, the model cannot be changed from the top.

Vitaliy Dudin, political scientist

We are told that there is no alternative to the unpopular reforms, but we argue that there is an alternative is possible: it consists in redistribution of wealth, nationalization of big business, progressive taxation, de-offshorization, Ukraine`s external debt write-off, including debt to the IMF. We believe that it was received on very dubious grounds, and spent on highly questionable grounds. Anyway, Ukraine simply will not survive without radical social reforms.
