Abstract


The paper discusses the issues of institutional integrated systematic support for ensuring social adaptation and reintegration of United Forces Operation (UFO) (formerly ATO) participants and internally displaced persons (IDPs). Insights are provided on the "Program of support, social adaptation and reintegration of Ukrainian citizens who moved from the temporarily occupied territory of Ukraine and areas of the anti-terrorist operation to other regions of Ukraine" along with the laws and Government regulations on the maintenance of social adaptation of the above population group in terms of efficient utilization of their labor potential. The study of different dimensions in promoting integration and social adaptation of the IDPs and UFO (ATO) participants allowed to identify the following subsequent stages in the process of integration of displaced persons into the local community: the preliminary phase affected by the integration factors; initial (adaption period); modification (transformation) stage related to the integration implementation; and the resultant one reinforcing the integration indicators. It has been revealed that large-scale integration involves: adjustment of a range of social and economic indicators; ensuring equal treatment to migrants within local community; providing conflict-free interaction; effective cooperation and partnership; long-lasting multi-level relationships; satisfaction with social status, comfort; positive perception of the environment in harmony with self-perception; positive demographic dynamics; linking the future of the community with the national labor potential enhancement. The research findings on the specifics of providing the institutional integrated systematic support for social adaptation and reintegration of UFO (ATO) participants and IDPs have enabled to build up and generalize the dimensions for promoting integration and social adaptation of the given population group concerned.
