Article focuses on the trends and characteristics of regional cooperation of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) in the field of social security. The main purpose of this work is the development of guidelines of a system of regional cooperation in the field of social security and the mechanisms for its implementation, which would be acceptable to all member countries of the Union. As a result of a comprehensive analysis, the authors define the necessity of enhancing regional cooperation in the sphere of joint social development of the EAEU using the forms and mechanisms of integration based on respect for international standards of social rights. The conclusions are made that the effects of the international social and legal norms through provisions of national laws is indirect and requires coordination with national standards. Lack of a single act in the EAEU, which brings together the main regional social and legal norms, the elasticity of the source base of regional social rights and the lack of a clear hierarchy of norms of international law, do not contribute to the effectiveness and implementation of the principles of EAEU.
