Collection Bulgarian Political and Social Issues Web Archive

About this Collection

The Bulgarian Political and Social Issues Web Archive is comprised of sites that address political and social issues and inform public policy. Content includes websites of Bulgarian politicians, political parties, non-governmental organizations, voluntary associations, and think tanks. The selection of websites represents a diversity of organizations from a vast array of political stances and viewpoints on topics such as the development of civil society, liberal democracy, corruption, economic inequality, human and minority rights, marginalization of certain groups, and freedom of the press.

Prominent examples include the Bulgarian Council for Refugees and Migrants, the Bulgarian Red Cross, the Bulgarian Helsinki Committee, the Bulgarian Association for the Promotion of Citizens Initiatives, and Amalipe, a Bulgarian Roma rights organization that organizes get-out-the vote events. Political parties also are represented with sites for GERB, Union of Democratic Forces, Green Party, Movement for Rights and Freedoms, Ataka, VMRO, and the Bulgarian Socialist Party, among others.

It is recommended that this collection be used in tandem with the physical collection of newspapers and periodicals available in the Bulgarian language and in English held in the Library of Congress collections. For Bulgarian governmental sites, visit the East European Government Ministries Web Archive.
