This paper contains a review and analysis of data, cause-and-effect relations and key issues affecting the lives of children in Bulgaria. They allow for analysis of the situation of children and women in the country, identifying major challenges and opportunities, and development of recommendations for national partners’ actions.
The methodology includes review of official statistical data, key legislation, strategic documents and studies. The analysis of the situation and the factors impacting the implementation of children’s rights, the interrelation between these factors, the identified needs and gaps, and the conclusions and recommendations are based on studies and surveys, national statistics data and international statistical and research organizations, as well as information from administrative sources and registers and reports.
