International standards of the right to an adequate standard of living and their impact on Ukrainian legislation
The provisions of international standards of human right to an adequate standard of living and their impact on national legislation have been investigated. It has been emphasized that since Ukraine gained independence and up to now the issue of ensuring a sufficient standard of living has remained one of the most problematic for our state. European integration processes, which provide for the modernization of Ukraine’s socio-economic policy towards improving the quality of life of each person, also increase the need for scientific research. It has been emphasized on the relevance and importance of studying the issues of regulation of the right to an adequate standard of living in view of the existing social problems, which have become much more acute with the beginning of the full-scale war of Russia against our country and have a huge negative impact on the living standards of Ukrainian citizens.
The purpose and objectives of the study are to analyze the provisions of international standards of the right to an adequate standard of living and to find the best ways to implement international standards of this right in the legislation of Ukraine in modern conditions, to determine further prospects for their development. The scientific novelty of the study is due to the lack of scientific analysis of the armed aggression impact on the right to an adequate standard of living realization and provides proposals for the effective implementation of international standards in the field of protection of the human right to an adequate standard of living in national legislation, taking into account these aspects. Modern methods of scientific research have been used, in particular formal and legal, historical and legal, systemic, logical and semantic, analysis and synthesis, etc. At the same time, the analysis of the right to an adequate standard of living has been based on the dialectical method, the use of which made it possible to understand doctrinal and normative sources in the researched area, to find out the content of the human right to an adequate standard of living both at the international and national levels and its essential characteristics.
It has been concluded that even in the conditions of war, the state should take measures aimed at preventing the decline in the living standards of its citizens below a sufficient level. It has been proven that the national legislation is primarily aimed at maintaining the minimum standard of living of a person, which largely diverges from concrete steps in the sphere of ensuring a decent standard of living of the population.
