In July 2010 representatives of six African countries – Benin, Central African Republic, Cameroon, Guinea, Morocco and Mauritania, attended a special course aimed at supporting establishing a school of politics in Africa.


The Program targeted young leaders from parliamentary represented political parties and civic organisations from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Kosovo, Macedonia, Romania, Serbia and Montenegro. It consisted of three five-day seminars, which were held in different countries included in the Project. The Program was implemented with the active involvement of the Network of Schools of Political Studies at the Council of Europe.


The aim of the Project was to further develop and improve the institutional and intellectual capacity of the Bulgarian School of Politics and to enhance its ability to disseminate new civil and political leadership culture in the country.


The primary objective of the project was to encourage the participation of young people, aged 18-25, in the elections for the European Parliament in 2009, by developing new models and channels of communication between youth groups and political parties/candidates and new models for voters’ mobilisation in the run-up to the elections. The coalition of four NGOs, created for the implementation of the project, worked to engage young people in the elections, providing them with non-partisan information about key issues shaping the candidates’ platforms.


The Bulgarian School of Politics (BSoP), in partnership with the Institute for Euro-Atlantic Cooperation (IEAC) in Kiev, proposed an initiative to aid Ukraine’s democratic community in the country’s efforts to join the Euro-Atlantic community. These efforts have had long term implications for the democratic consolidation and the irreversibility of the democratic processes in Ukraine, for the strategic and geopolitical balance and the stability of the Black Sea region, and for the economic development at both the domestic and regional level.


The purpose of the project was to provide expertise and short-term training to politicians and representatives of the governmental and non-governmental sectors in Ukraine in view of Ukraine’s prospective membership in the EU and NATO.  The Bulgarian School of Politics organized a workshop for Ukrainian NGO activists and politicians to discuss with their Bulgarian counterparts the main obstacles and hurdles on the way to joining the EU and NATO.


The project enhanced the capacity of non-governmental organizations from the regions with compact Roma population to develop working mechanisms for dialogue between state institutions and the “third sector” through training and development of public private partnerships.


During the local pre-election campaign in 2007, the Bulgarian School of Politics organized five public debates with representatives of local civil society and candidates for mayors. The initiative was supported by the Trust for Civil Society in Central and Eastern Europe and implemented along with the Chitalishte Development Foundation, the Foundation for Local Government Reform and the Balkan Assist. The local debates were shot by the Bulgarian National Television and broadcasted for disseminating the main purpose of the project – stimulation of citizen’s active involvement in local elections and informed voting.


The Project “With Respect to Others” was implemented along with the National Council for Cooperation on Ethnic and Demographic Issues at the Council of Ministers and was financed by the European Commission. Six regional information campaigns and discussions were organized and about 500 representatives of local authorities, non-governmental organizations, media and other institutions took place in them. The local campaigns and discussions increased awareness of Bulgarian citizens regarding antidiscrimination legislation and opportunities for combating discrimination based on six criteria: race and ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion and faith, and age. As a result of six regional and one national discussions, the indicators for measuring discrimination were developed and incorporated into the Action Plan of the National Council.


The overall objective of the Project was to organize a conference at which to define on comparative basis the main problems and challenges facing the internal functioning of political parties in the region.


The purpose of the Project was to bring together Roma civil society and political activists and representatives of other ethnic groups in order to raise civic awareness and ethnic tolerance throughout Bulgaria.
