Bohdanna Kosovych


Introduction. The modern world community is experiencing a period of globalization with its undoubted positives and some negatives. Among the positives is the course of humanization, efforts to comprehensively ensure fundamental human rights, as illustrated by the development at the UN level of "Sustainable Development Goals" (hereinafter CSW). This human-oriented document was supported by most countries of the world, including Ukraine. The tasks of the CSB are quite serious, the mechanism of their implementation is determined by domestic specifics. In Ukrainian society, there are several areas of implementation of the CSW: through the involvement of resources of the state apparatus, through the activities of various political forces, through public activity, and so on. The political, legal and ideological tools of providing the CSB are undoubtedly positive. However, in our opinion, economic factors are crucial for their implementation. Among them, one of the most important and realistic is the public-private partnership, which unites the state, the private sector and civil society to solve the most important strategic humanistic tasks. The development of its new forms and the creation of a system of political, legal and social means of support is becoming especially relevant in modern domestic realities.

Goal. The purpose of scientific work is to consider the importance of public-private partnership, analysis of its essence, the prerequisites for development; economic and legal characteristics of PPP, its features and humanistic components; elaboration of a generalizing concept; substantiation of the value of PPP in the mechanism of CSW implementation; characteristics of economic positives of PPP for society and business; finding out the main directions of PPP development and means of their provision.

Method (methodology). The methodological basis of this scientific research is a system of general scientific and special scientific methods. In particular, the system method allows you to see the main characteristics of PPP in their relationship; the method of comparison illustrates the unity of the strategic purpose of PPP and CSW and their relationship; the dialectical method is necessary for definition of still possible directions and forms of development of PPP; the method of economic analysis reveals the weak and problematic "places" of PPP in modern domestic economic and socio-political realities.

Results. According to the results of the study, the importance of the development of public-private partnership for the establishment of CSW in Ukraine is argued. The definition of the concept of "public-private partnership" in the plane of the ideology of the modern social economy is given. Its basic principles are described. Emphasis is placed on the positive significance of public-private partnership, both for society and for business. The main directions and forms of public-private partnership development in the current domestic economic realities are determined. Additional economic and political-legal means of its provision and support are offered.
