One of the directions of the Dnistrianskyi Centre’s work is legal analytical studies of the issues that are of concern for the society. We try not just to point to a problem, but to provide the mechanisms for solving it.
The first analytical study of the Centre is related to the NSDC and the margin of its discretion. The author of the report is Olena Boryslavska, doctor of law, associate professor, professor of the Department of Constitutional Law, Ivan Franko National University of Lviv.
Why have we chosen the topic of the NSDC for research?
How can this report be of use for you?
This analytical report outlines the margin of discretion of the NSDC of Ukraine, with due account of the constitutional nature of the body and its legal status. It aims to provide civil society representatives with brief information that could be used, when analyzing the legitimacy of decisions of the NSDC of Ukraine as well as while exercising public control over the this body’s operation.
Specific NSDC’s decisions passed during the so called fight against “the threats to economic security” testify to the fact that this body went beyond its margin of discretion; such activity does not meet NSDC’s functional designation; not only human rights and freedoms are violated under such conditions, but there also occurs a distorted shift in the state power division system: the position of the President gets considerably, unjustifiably strengthened, and the activity of pre-trial investigation bodies and judicial authorities are misrepresented.
