Abstract

The purpose of the article is to form methodological bases for assessing and ensuring socio-economic security of the region. The relevance of the study is due to the fact that the stability and viability of the state largely depends on the level of socio-economic security of its administrative-territorial units.

The article identifies the essence of socio-economic security of the region by studying two categories: social and economic security. The goals and sequence of development of the Program for strengthening the socio-economic security of the region are substantiated. An algorithm for assessing the level of socio-economic security of the region using an integrated indicator is proposed.

The most significant threats to the socio-economic security of the region are characterized, among which are: uneven territorial development of the country; deepening structural disparities in regional labor markets; low level of technology use; deteriorating investment climate; rising unemployment; poverty growth; changing demographic situation and others. A list of indicators of socio-economic security of the region by economic, social and environmental spheres has been formed. As an example, the weights for the selected indicators are determined, as well as their reference or limit values.

It is concluded that in substantiating the directions of strengthening the socio-economic security of the region should take into account both the results of the assessment and the factors that determine its specificity, in particular: geographical location; transit theory; natural resource potential; areas of economic specialization; the level of state support in the region.
