Our work is grounded in well-documented work on the ground, research and finally policy recommendations. We examine challenges to democracy and remembrance in Bulgaria and in a comparative context and use our reports to inform and improve our work with practitioners on the ground.



Our Opinions section features expert insights on issues of past and remembrance, the functioning of state security in communist Bulgaria, democratic transition, as well as the future of democracy in Europe.

Business notes


On the occasion of the initiative “25 Years Free Bulgaria”, organized by the Sofia Platform under the auspices of the President of the Republic of Bulgaria Rosen Plevneliev, which had the aim to commemorate the 25th anniversary since the fall of the Berlin Wall, we collected essays on that topic from Bulgarian and foreign participants throughout the events and activities of the initiative. The authors are historians, researchers, writers, public and intellectual figures.
