The article considers the rule of law as a universal value, the constitutional and legal concept; good and effective governance as the Russian analogue of the concept of “good institutions”, the prospects for formalizing and constitutionalizing the right to good and effective governance. The aim is to study the interconnection and interdependence of the rule of law and the effective state, problem areas, where the concept of “good governance” is implemented in the modern world, taking into account the classification of states; Russian problems of ensuring the rule of law in the context of the implementation of good and effective governance. The article analyzes the ontological and epistemological possibilities to build good and democratic constitutionalism in Russia; the role of the Islamic principle of Ihsan to justify the possibility to transit to good governance.
The purpose of the work is to reveal the interconnectedness and interdependence of the rule of law and good and effective governance as constitutional values in the public sphere and public administration; prospects for constitutionalization and legal parameters of the right to good and effective governance.
A discursive approach is used in a combination of formal legal, comparative, concrete historical and hermeneutical methods of analysis, methods of constitutional engineering and design of constitutional rights.
Conclusions: the right to good and effective governance has a multilevel complex nature, constitutional and constituent status; its implementation requires the interaction of various branches of law, the public and private sectors, the active involvement of citizens and non-profit organizations in assessing the activities of the state. “Good and effective governance” is also considered as a legal institution, which structure has two fundamental parts: 1) one part is connected with the functioning of the institution: the administration and state and municipal authorities in the material sense (at various territorial levels); 2) the other part provides a democratic, informational and communication basis for managerial decision-making processes (through the involvement of citizens, interest groups, for example, social and non-governmental organizations in the decisionmaking process).
