Abstract

The article examines innovative approaches to the use of interdisciplinary scientific research for solving the problems of contemporary political science. Attention has been given to the subject area of political consensus, in which the normative principles of the political institutes functioning acquire new meaning. The importance of political-institutional requirements for consensus-building for the legitimation of transitive political regimes is considered. The effectiveness of political consensus in the context of large-scale political crises is clarified. The importance of the stages of achieving political consensus for the new democracies, including the modern Ukraine, is determined. The purpose of the article is to establish the peculiarities of the interpretation of political consensus as a factor in the sustainable democratic development of society. The content of the theoretical and methodological foundations for the development of political and institutional support of political consensus is elucidated. The content of political consensus and its subject, activity of subjects and objects of political consensus, which interact with each other, is established. The level of the general political and legal culture of consensus relations, which is formed in each transformational society, is also characterized. The features of the political-institutional balance of political compromise and political consensus are revealed. Evaluated the importance of political consensus implies the state of universal consent of political actors within the framework of the adoption of macro-political decision. The attention was paid to promoting a political compromise in transformational societies in modern political science. The factors of political and institutional support of political consensus are analyzed, which determine the necessity of making joint decisions by separate branches of power and interim authorities. The processes were studied when the collegial consensus decision-making was established, which determined the joint political responsibility of political actors and the entire population of the country or another country that enjoyed political and legal sovereignty.The attention paid to the constitutional forms of political and institutional provision of political consensus determines the need for joint decisions by separate branches of power and interim authorities.It has been established that, unlike other political and legal acts regulating the functioning of statehood within individual countries and regions of the world, acts that are part of political and institutional support of political consensus should regulate the number of subjects of consensus and its results.It is determined that, in general, the political and institutional provision of political consensus in developed democracies forms a basic model of consensual democracy in which minority rights are provided with a high level of consultation and fulfillment of interests.It was clarified that normative-legal acts belong to the sphere of political-institutional support of political consensus not through the content, which contains specific means of regulation concerning the stage of formation of political consensus.
