Twelve representatives from the last three classes of the Bulgarian School of Politics “Dimitry Panitza”, including MPs, people with local experience, judges, professionals working with children, representatives of the civil and business sector, have discussed the challenges and opportunities in formulating adequate children’s policies.
The aim of the focus group was that graduates of the BSoP share their opinion on the current status of the child protection system in Bulgaria as well as evaluate the training system of the organization in the field of children’s policies. The public opinion leaders’ willingness to participate in the formulation of child policies and system reforms has also been examined. Common goals and possible joint initiatives of the various stakeholders working on child and family issues have been identified.
The group discussion was part of the project “The Voice of Bulgarian Children”, in which BSoP has been working for three years, thanks to the OAK Foundation.
