Abstract

The detailed analysis of all four components of the republican tradition has allowed us to determine the conditions under which they can be fully realized in modern political parties as the organisational ideal.

In the course of our research (its results are presented in a number of publications), we ran a diagnostic of Ukrainian political parties; analysed the external and internal environments; defined the prerequisites for the construction of successful ideological political middle class parties in Ukraine within the framework of the republican tradition as the organizational ideal; identified key issues that thwart this process and formulated our own conception of their solution.

This made it possible to develop a strategy for restructuring Ukrainian political parties that includes their vision; a variable structure constructed for them – i.e. a dynamic network; and the order of deployment of political organizations on its basis, the concept of their activity, and the principles of financing.

Keywords: political organizations, republican tradition, organizational ideal, hierarchical construction, variable structure, dynamic networks
