Development of ideology and ideology of development: contemporary Ukraine from the perspective of sociology of development and modernization
Post-Leninist societies in general and Ukraine in particular are facing a challenge of reformulating their respective ideologies of development in terms of liberal democracy and capitalism. The article provides a sociological analysis of the dynamic of the ideology of development in Ukraine as it is viewed by major social / political forces and its impact on a vision of Ukrainian developmental project. The mode of interaction among ideal-typically defined approaches to the ideology of development is conceptualized as a conflicting and mutually exclusive one. This has resulted in the formation of partisan and partial ideologies of development incapable of incorporating relevant insights suggested by other approaches. The novelty of the article is in its analysis of the ideology of development in terms of the equity, efficiency and participation. It is argued that the project of development under current circumstances cannot be reduced to economic growth and should be accompanied by institution building in the realm of political and civil societies as well as social welfare. The emergence successful implementation of the ideology of development in the post-Leninist Ukraine depends on its major political actors' ability to promote - instead of circumscribing - the creative potential of democracy.
