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.
