THE SOCIO-ECONOMIC ROLE OF LOCAL GOVERNMENTS IN THE FIELD OF GUARDIANSHIP AND CONSERVATORSHIP OF ADULTS IN UKRAINE
Based on the content of Article 55 of the Civil Code of Ukraine, the task of guardianship and conservatorship of adult incapacitated persons and persons with limited legal capacity – is to ensure the personal non-property and property rights and interests of such persons, and as practice shows, there are currently a significant number of problems. The relevant problems are, inter alia, of a social and economic nature and affect a large number of subjects, with a special role being assigned to local self-government bodies, whose executive bodies, according to the definition of Ukrainian legislation, are guardianship and conservatorship bodies. This problem has a significant negative impact on the quality of life of adults in need of care and assistance, as well as on the exercise of relevant powers by local authorities. The above testifies to the usefulness of the study of the socio-economic role of local self-government bodies in the field of guardianship and conservatorship of adult incapacitated persons and persons with limited legal capacity. In this regard, an attempt was made to characterize the legislative basis and practical organization of the activities of local self-government bodies during their performance and powers of guardianship and conservatorship of adults, to determine and analyze the relevant duties, which, according to the results of the study, are proposed to be classified into three main groups (ensuring, protecting and defending the rights and legitimate interests of adults in need of guardianship and conservatorship; controlling and supervising the activities of guardianship and conservatorship entities (guardians, conservators and special institutions); controlling and supervising the preservation and management of property of persons under guardianship and conservatorship).
