Polit-Barometer: Year 18, Issue 3, July-September

The start of the new political season saw ministerial resignations, indicating that a hot political autumn is expected. Events in recent months have shown growing instability in governance, to which ministerial resignations are hardly likely to be the answer. The crisis with the Commercial Register, the bankruptcy of the insurance company „Olympic“, and poor-quality road construction are the result of complex problems, which will continue to generate such crises in the future. An accumulation of such scandals can lead to a gradual erosion in the support of the government.

Polit-Barometer: Year 18, Issue 2, April-June

The Presidency of Bulgaria of the EU Council can be judged as a successful political, logistical and communication plan. The theme of the “Western Balkans”, which had long been absent from the highest European forums, was back on the agenda again. Despite the difficulties and challenges faced by countries in the region, the prospects for integration open new horizons related to solving a long-standing controversy. The solution to the dispute over the name of Macedonia that Skopje and Athens reached shows that dialogue is possible in the name of a common European future.

Polit-Barometer: Year 18, Issue 1, January-March

The political situation in the first months of 2018 was determined to a great extent by the political tension created around the ratification of the Istanbul Convention and the deal with CEZ. These two events moved the focus of public attention away from the start of the rotational Presidency of Bulgaria of the Council of the EU. Despite the political controversies, the Presidency has been running successfully so far. The government has focused its efforts on two main priorities - integration of the Western Balkans into the EU and bringing the relations between the EU and Turkey back to normal.

Better Inclusion of Young Refugees in Education, Labour Market and Society

The report summarises an international conference, which gathered over 40 European and national policy makers, international and national experts, youth representatives and activists and over 40 young participants across Europe, the Black Sea and Mediterranean regions. In theory, young people are supposed to have access to social protection, but in reality young refugees are often being denied of access to any social services and benefits. The recent migration crisis has also shown that European policies are inadequate in ensuring the rights of all young people in Europe. Youth organizations across Europe have turned out to be one of the main driving forces towards a better social inclusion and integration of refugees.

The Big Importance of the Small “Seniority Grade” - Bulgarian Experience and European Practices for Stimulating Professionalism

The payment for professional experience and labour service, more known as “seniority grade” has become subject to fierce attacks from Bulgarian employers’ organisations. While it the only guarantee that salaries will be augmented annually, albeit just a little, employers argue this system does not exist elsewhere in Europe. Although government does not support the employers’ organisations so far, under mounting pressure from lobbying, certain state officials have started to give in. We find that the Bulgarian model has many analogies in other EU countries and beyond. In fact, the majority of the analyzed country do have models of augmenting salaries and/or adjusting base salaries according to professional experience. Bulgaria´s model of seniority grade therefore neither stands isolated...
