social tension




One of the broadest methodological problems dealing with doing multi-faceted social and sociological research in different subject-matters of Ukrainian society on extrapolation of Ukraine territory-geographical division, namely the criteria of its regionalization, is under discussion in the article. Basic scientific definitions and approaches on the region identification are given in the article. Different research approaches on this problem and regionalization criteria are taken into consideration under national conditions of regional differentiation. The aim of the paper is to substantiate the best approach and region division criterion in Ukraine from the perspective of social tension study. Having analyzed a number of scientific approaches, we suggest the political –administrative regional division as the best one in social tension study.
