Project Description

The project addresses the issue of organized crime in Bulgaria and its implications of high level political corruption. It was expected that this phenomenon would disappear once the social and economic transformations were completed but it proved to be a long persisting problem in the country. It has even penetrated the sphere of national political institutions thus being subject of severe critics from the European Commission. The public institutions are not prepared to solve the problem as they react slowly or do not operate with modern methods and lack public support. On the other hand, the citizens have no real understanding of the nature of this phenomenon and thus cannot undertake the necessary civil actions. The expertise provided by other policy institutes or organizations is not sufficient for an effective counteraction.
