The general articulation of the issue and its connection with the important research and practice tasks. The authors described the current state of ensuring the development of executive discipline mechanisms in the public service. The modern state of ensuring executive discipline in the public service has been analysed taking into account modern challenges, in particular, changes in working conditions of public servants during martial law in Ukraine and perspectives of improvement of executive discipline both in this period and in conditions of post-war transformation.

The purpose of the article is to reveal scientific and practical concepts of ensuring the development of mechanisms of executive discipline in the public service in conditions of modern challenges and threats; develop suggestions on how to develop modern mechanisms of executive discipline for further improvement of public administration and management in Ukraine.

The analysis of the recent publications regarding the issues this article deals with; identification of parts of the general problem that have not been previously addressed. Particular attention is focused on the study and implementation of best practices of foreign experience in domestic public administration. Accession of Ukraine as a candidate to the European community, which now provides large-scale support to Ukraine in the fight against the Russian aggressor, requires updating the basic mechanisms of executive discipline in the public service, such as regulatory, organizational, planning, monitoring, evaluation and quality management. From the point of view of the theory of public administration and Ukraine's transformation processes into European space, it is advisable to expand the classification of the mentioned mechanisms with motivational value, informational and analytical, and digitalization. This will help to consolidate and develop the level of executive discipline in the public service through the self-improvement, self-development and self-fulfilment abilities of public servants.

Therefore, the key research outcomes are aimed at improving the development of basic mechanisms for ensuring executive discipline in the public service, widely used in European countries. Conclusions and prospects for further research suggest directions of adaptation of European experience in providing mechanisms for the development of the executive discipline in the public service, which is due to the importance of transformational processes of proper democratic governance in Ukraine, introduction of innovative mechanisms to ensure a high level of executive discipline in the multi-level public administration.
