Institute for Personnel Training of the State Employment Service of Ukraine

Problem setting. Compared to other post-Soviet states, Ukraine is maximally open to globalization. Consequently, it is more and more affected by the destructive manifestations of globalization. Such openness, which fully corresponds to the structure of the Ukrainian mentality, is, on the one hand, a powerful factor in the modernization dynamics of social development, and on the other – a brake on the formation and implementation of its own nationally regulated development strategy. Such openness mainly affects the liberalization of the economic sphere,which in  the future may lead to Ukraine's inability to control and effectively manage other negative manifestations of globalization.

Recent research and publications analysis. Modern methodology for the study of globalization, formed on an interdisciplinary basis. Beck U. and Grande E. studied the problems of globalization and defining the essence of this concept. The peculiarities of globalization in the world dimension have been the subject of Giddens A. research. S. Huntington studied the clash of civilizations and the transformation of the world order. D. Henderson study of globalization in the formation and development of information technology. I. Wallerstein principles of globalization as an era of transition to a new world order.
Highlighting previously unsettled parts of the general problem. At the same time, a unified conceptual system of views on understanding its essence and the nature of the impact on society and governance has not yet been formed, which actualizes the topic.

Paper main body. Globalization is seen as a new type of social development in the context of the formation of a new geostrategic reality, accompanied by the establishment of new value coordinates, qualitative change of principles and structure of the world, modernization of social, political, economic and public systems. Theoretical and methodological bases of research of globalization problems in interdisciplinary discourse are generalized. Alternative forms and challenges of globalization to nation states and social practices are analyzed. The security imperatives of globalization are justified in the context of ensuring a stabilizing balance in the development of the global world in order to realize the interests of geostrategic partners. It is consistently believed that globalization is a universal form of historical dynamics, resulting in qualitative and quantitative changes in the functioning of transitional societies. Argued formation of a new paradigm of social development management: as a result, against the background of globalization, the nature of civil service values is fundamentally changing, which in the new conditions require a new level of professional identity and national consciousness of employees. It is proposed to create a Code of Interaction of States in the context of globalization, which can be an effective tool in interstate relations.

It is argued that the state globalization policy of Ukraine should take into account the balance of geostrategic forces in the global space and clearly define the place and role of Ukraine in it. Ukraine's globalization policy should be aimed primarily at realizing national interests not by adapting to the needs of the global development system, but by being able to declare and defend its own nationally regulated position in the global world.

Conclusions of the research and prospects for further studies. The impact of globalization on the functioning of the modern world is characterized by a high level of interdependence and interaction between states. The basis of such interdependence and interaction is the convergence of value systems that guide states in choosing their development strategy, the form of their attitude to other states. This, in turn, makes it possible to determine the basic conceptual
