The academic paper presents a review of the conditions and methods of using the European experience of providing public services by state authorities in Ukraine. The development and implementation of effective mechanisms for the provision of services at various levels of administration and the state management is an urgent issue for modern Ukraine. Primarily, it is an analysis and adaptation of the European experience of administration to the conditions and features of the Ukrainian statehood development. The purpose of the research is to highlight foreign experience in public services delivery and algorithms for its adaptation to the realities of public administration in Ukraine. The research methodology contemplates an integrated approach; methods of analysis and synthesis, as well as methods of interdisciplinary research have been also used. As a result, it has been established that the general experience of European countries, which should be taken into account by Ukraine, is the direction towards a transparent, effective policy of organizing the provision of public services, reforming the legislative framework, and partnership. In practice, this makes it possible to implement the citizens’ rights and freedoms, to meet the needs of the society as a whole, to direct the work of the authorities towards achieving results in public administration. The further perspective of the research in the administration sphere lies in determining the ways of implementing the best foreign experience in the provision of public services and their adaptation to the realities of public administration and legislation in Ukraine.
