VULNERABILITY AND PROTECTION: IDENTIFYING VULNERABLE PERSONS AMONG ASYLUM SEEKERS IN BULGARIA

The project aims to promote the rights of vulnerable asylum seekers and to support the harmonization of Bulgarian legislation and practices with European standards and requirements. It also provides observations on the broader experience of asylum seekers with the process of applying for protection in Bulgaria from the moment they cross the border up until and after receiving a decision on their claim.

The core project activity consisted of conducting interviews with asylum seekers both in the CLA and ACET offices and in the reception centres of SAR, using a specially designed questionnaire. The interim results were discussed in working groups involving all major stakeholders, including SAR representatives. Expert reports were produced every six months with this final report, published in February 2015, building on the previous reports and summarizing and analyzing the entire set of the data.
