The article attempts to cover a number of elements related to transparency, as a principle, phenomena and requirements of public authority, as well as in the practice of public authorities. The author places the principle of transparency in the second place after the rule of law in the system of public administration. In fact, both of these principles have an extensive system of elements that together form the foundation for effective public administration. If transparency determines the approach to the proper construction of public administration, the rule of law, due to its focus on protecting natural human rights against state influence, has a negative connotation on protecting certain human rights against the requirements of the principle of transparency. From the standpoint of scientific criticism, it is noted that the broad interpretation of the features and elements of transparency (openness, transparency, accessibility, accountability, publicity, publicity, access to public information and community participation in public affairs), through their partial overlapping, undermines the administrative integrity of the concept, used in the approaches of foreign authors.

The implementation of the principle of transparency in the activities of public administration is one of the key places in the modern principles of organization and functioning of government. The elaboration of international organizations' approaches to the implementation of the principle of transparency in public administration has clearly demonstrated the correlation of this principle with the approaches of good governance and the prevention of corruption, as well as its broad interpretation as one that combines the principles of accountability, transparency and public participation. This places transparency in the second place after the rule of law in the system of public administration.
