Study of the events that took place in 2015 in Garmen, Orlandovtsi and Kyustendil


This study was conducted by the Institute for Public Environment Development as a part of the project “The League of Roma Observers - Supporting Fair Electoral Process”

The goal of the study is to outline certain aspects of the current state-of-play of Roma integration policies in Bulgaria in view of a radically changed international and domestic political context. In particular, our goal is to present a set of findings, conclusions and recommendations for the improvement of measures undertaken in this area.

Garmen, Orlandovci and Kyustendil are essentially local case-studies that are nevertheless symptomatic in their nature. They share a number of features and lead to a set of general conclusions and recommendations that can apply to both the affected Roma communities and the general policy on Roma integration in Bulgaria.

You can find the complete study here (in English).

Civic monitoring of the audits, conducted by the Commission for Personal Data Protection over the political parties, registered for the European elections - 2014


On the 4th of July, 2014 representatives of the Institute for Public Environment Development participated in the coordination meeting of the Commission for Personal Data Protection in which it was stated that complaints and reports of unlawful use of personal data during the European elections amounted for a total of 1380 signals. The Commission for Personal Data Protection decided to conduct full inspections of all parties and coalitions that were registered for the European elections in 2014. 


In addition to clarifying the particular cases of these signals and complaints, inspections were directed also over the compliance with the Law of Personal Data Protection by these parties, registered as data controllers. IPED representatives were invited by the Commission to carry out civic monitoring of the measures that were implemented by it. Thus, observers from the civic sector were participating for the first time in the inspections of the Commission for Personal Data Protection. The Commission appointed the inspections to 4 teams, which consisted a member of the Commission, other administrative employees and observers from the NGO sector.

 

In the attached file, you can review the report of the Institute for Public Environment Development, related to the civic monitoring of the Commission's work. It is published in Bugarian.*


The author of the report is our expert - Lubomir Avdzhiisky.
