In the early 21st century the Ukrainian society civilizational modernization is far from being over. The current task is to acquire the modern European society model, the society that has overcome the negative attitude to the past and has liberated itself from the utopias concerning the future.

Keywords: civilizational transformation, modernization, society, value, university.

This paper is aimed at the impact of particularism in political decision-making. It is argued that political decisions are particularistic according to the goal and circumstances, in which they are made. It is still unclear, which consequences – good or bad – particularistic component of political decisions may lead to. The focal question is to what extent the particularism in political decisions can help in resolving social problems or does harm to society. In the framework of the network analysis, the article presents organizational and procedural examples of particularism predominance and political means of its balancing. As an illustration of a completely particularistic system by institutional and practical means of decision-making, the case of Ukraine is showed. It is ascertained that the dominance of particularism in political decision-making can lead to ambivalent effects: being highly destructive for the stability of the system it can be saving for democratic modes of governance.
Keywords: particularism, political decisions, political networks, groups of interests, clubs.
