A program, in which every year 40 representatives of all parliamentary political parties from both Bulgarian and European parliaments and civil society leaders take part.

The "Together for LGBT Rights in Bulgaria" project will raise the awareness among teachers, politicians, business leaders, civil society leaders, and LGBT youths regarding the many forms of discrimination and prejudice that LGBT people face in Bulgaria. As a major result, increased intolerance to discrimination and mobilization of allies to the LGBT equality movement in Bulgaria is expected.

The project is implemented by a consortium consisting of: Workshop for Civic Initiatives Foundation, Bulgarian Donor Forum, Bulgarian School of Politics "Dimitry Panitza", Syndicate "Education" at Podkrepa Labor Code, Glas Foundation Bulgaria and Youth LGBT Organization "Deistvie". The project partners working in different spheres join together to implement a broad information campaign among their target groups in support of the LGBT people's equality in Bulgaria.


,,Europe and I" is a project implemented by the Bulgarian School of Politics ,,Dimitry Panitza". Its purpose is to raise the awareness and interest of the Bulgarian public towards the role and work of the European parliament.The project is supported by the European parliament and will continue until the end of June 2017. The audience that has been targeted by the project is youngsters between the age of 16 and 29.

The project foresees debates between the members of the European parliament and youths from three Bulgarian universities on subjects like ,,The role of the free media in the European context'', ,,The new technologies and their influence on the life and work of people'' as well as ,,Are you ready for a private business''. During the meetings the Bulgarian members of the European parliament will formulate their message in the context of the opportunities and perspectives which the European Union provides for young people.

Bulgarian members of the European parliament will be invited to share their priorities within the BSoP's National program ,,Governing skills"

A photo competition ,,This is my Europe" will be held at the beginning of spring. A professional jury will evaluate the work of the young photographers and the best pictures will be presented at a special exhibition. 

The final event on the project will be a discussion on "Will I vote at the elections for members of the European parliament and why?". During this event the MEPs will answer questions raised by young people.


The aim of the project is to analyse the social environment based on the experts knowledge and professional experience of the alumni of the Bulgarian School of Politics "Dimitry Panitza". It engages the whole BSoP alumni community, consisting of over 600 people, who are professional politicians, representatives of NGOs or branch organisations, or are magistrates. These are public opinion leaders, who can directly or indirectly influence public policies and processes within social and political life.

Based on the analysis of the social environment and its deficits, three key areas will be identified as problematic for Bulgaria. These will be thoroughly studied and BSoP alumni, split into different teams, will work on the problems, will give recommendations for overcoming the shortcomings and suggest reforms into policies. The three key areas will be discussed as with the alumni, as well as with the current participants in the National Program "Governing skills". The analysis will help further develop the BSoP's training programs and improve the way the School works with the alumni community.

The project is implemented by the Bulgarian School of Politics "Dimitry Panitza", with the financial support of the America for Bulgaria Foundation and will continue for 21 months.
