Legal regulation of social services in the regions of the Russian Federation
Abstract.The research subject is the set of legal provisions regulating the peculiarities of social services in the regions of the Russian Federation in the context of reforming the legislation in the sphere of social services. The purpose of the study is to analyze the set of problems in the sphere of legal regulation of social services on the regional level. The study is based on the legislative acts in the sphere of social services of Arkhangelsk, Ivanovo and Nizhny Novgorod regions. Special attention is given to the types of social services in these regions and to the problem of establishment of the charge for social services. The author applies system analysis and the comparative legal method of scientific cognition. The scientific novelty of the study consists in the complex legal analysis of the legal provisions of the federal and regional legislation in the sphere of social services; in the comparison of legal regulation of social services in Russian regions, and in the development of recommendations and proposals about the further improvement of social legislation in Russia. The results of the research can be used in the law making activities of federal and regional authorities aimed at the improvement of legal regulation of social services, and in research activities.
The author formulates the following proposals:
1) Some services, offered in the regions of the Russian Federation in the sphere of social welfare, are the same as social services, which should be guaranteed by regional authorities in accordance with other provisions in the sphere of social welfare (particularly, in the sphere of health protection and healthcare delivery) and the provisions of other branches of law (for example, in the sphere of education). This fact proves a complex and intersectoral nature of social services;
2) It is necessary to formalize not an approximate but a minimal list of social services on the federal level according to the types of social services with an opportunity to extend this list on the regional and municipal levels;
3) It is necessary to formalize on the federal level the methodological recommendations for the detection of persons who need social services, containing particular measures, which would help reveal such persons.
