At this time, the need is being determined to revise the existing approaches to the study of transformation processes in the economy and society in order to develop appropriate reform measures based on new methodological foundations. A scientific understanding of the driving forces of socio-economic progress requires the determination of its material basis and the role of the economic structure of society in it, with a special significance of property relations. It is about changing the foundation, restructuring and creating new forms of development. The basis on which the further development of the transformational society depends is property relations. The process of post-socialist transformation is viewed by the author as an institutional complex based on the property system. The scientific novelty of the research lies in the development of theoretical and methodological foundations for a systematic study of property relations, identification of the institution of property as a jointly shared resource system and substantiation on this basis of the prospects for transforming the socio-economic system in compliance with the provisions of the Constitution of Ukraine concerning property relations. Separate proposals for changing the Economic Code of Ukraine and their justification in accordance with the developed concept are presented.
The proposed approach makes it possible to understand the real mechanisms of building a new society, in which the civic community is not just an association of free self-governing associations, but above all a society in which individual citizens are its main components. In the process of adjusting  innovative production within the territorial community, interdependent processes of social consolidation and strengthening of the state are launched; a new system of social order is being created that regulates the behavior of the main social subjects in the context of the implementation of the strategic goals of the state cooperation is being adjusted between science, government, society and the world community.
