About Us

The Bulgarian Association for the Promotion of Citizens Initiative is a non-governmental, non-profit organization, having 16 years of experience nationally and internationally in the area of democracy, democratic citizenship and human rights. Our activities have included non-formal training, dissemination of information and awareness campaigns on specific human rights (gender parity, non-discrimination of disabled people, environmental rights, right to access public information). We have also been involved in advocacy for democratic governance – especially legislative change for enabling direct decision-making and citizens participation in Bulgaria, as well as in the EU. In 2003 we became part of the citizens’effort to introduce the European Citizens Initiative and coordinated the campaign in Bulgaria. In 2009 we have been awarded a national award for the assertion of the right to information in Bulgaria.
