What we do

We document human rights violations

We monitor the human rights situation in Bulgaria since 1992. We provide Bulgarian and international institutions with expert reports and statements, informing legislators, state administration, as well as the broader society.

We provide free legal aid

We do strategic litigation in selected cases of violations of basic human rights in Bulgaria. We prioritise aiding vulnerable communities for whose members it is unlikely to have access to justice.

We do advocacy

We organise campaigns to inform broader Bulgarian and international society on the human rights situation in Bulgaria and we mobilise civil society for causes in defense of human rights.
