Value Policy: Conceptual Interpretation of Research Practices


Background/Objectives: Today the problem of increasing the efficiency of policy management is extremely urgent. Former administrative practices often do not provide desired results; hence there is the need to find new management approaches. Method/Statistical Analysis: Conceptual interpretation of research practices related to the study of value policy is based on a methodological reflection, which is aimed at understanding scientists’ research actions and revealing hidden, implicit presuppositions of scientific knowledge. Methodological reflection is the external reflection existing as a condition and means of analysis of a specific research activity. Findings: In general, the content of value policy based on public values can be summarized as follows: 1) an effective governance should be based on collective public values and generating in the society the most significant of them; 2) public values must be legitimate, i.e., approved by both politicians and the general public in the process of social dialogue; 3) the efficient use of public values in the policy should be constantly monitoring; 4) state and public organizations should understand, articulate and review, if required, public values. The basic principles of value policy based on humanitarian technologies are publicity, axiologiness, subjectivity and humanitarism. Applications/Improvements: In the research practices related to the study of value policy such methodological principles as interpretationism, indeterminacy, contextualism, pragmatism and pluralism should be further studied.
