On December 10, 2023, the XVII international sociological readings in memory of N. V. Panina and Yu. I. Yakovenko “Ukrainian society and sociologists before the challenges of war and post-war development” took place at the Kyiv School of Economics University.
The scientific event was organized by the Institute of Sociology of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, the Sociological Association of Ukraine, the Sociological Center named after N. V. Panina. The meeting aroused the great interest of domestic scientists and was called to discuss at a professional level a wide range of issues related to the problems of researching the transformational processes taking place in Ukrainian society in the conditions of war.
Two collective monographs were presented within the framework of the international scientific event:
- “Ukrainian society in the conditions of war. Year 2023” / edited by E. I. Holovakha and S. O. Makeev. (Institute of Sociology of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine);
- “Political system of Ukraine: constitutional model and political practices” / Zelenko G. I. (scientific editor) and others. (Kuras Institute of Political and Ethnonic Studies of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine).
Head of the Department of Political Institutes and Processes of the Kuras Institute of Political and Ethnic Studies of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, Doctor of Political Sciences, Professor, Corresponding Member of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, Galyna Zelenko, presenting the work of our colleagues, noted that the team of authors tried to understand in detail and structure all subsystems of the political system and analyze its applied manifestations in Ukraine, giving the answer on a number of urgent issues, among which, in particular, the following: omissions that made the effectiveness of certain elements of the established constitutional model practically impossible and, as a result, generated their weak institutional capacity; the correctness and expediency of the political choice made during the implementation of institutional construction, etc. However, the main thing is the search for tools to eliminate the existing problems, which currently prevent the further full-fledged democratic development of Ukraine.
