Mission Report – Bulgaria, 25-26 January 2016

In December 2015 and January 2016, EESC delegations visited eleven EU Member States to meet civil society organisations working with migrants in order to identify the problems, needs, failures, success stories and best practices of the various actors in the current refugee crisis with the final aim of providing input to EU policy-making. The delegation to Bulgaria was composed of Evgeniy Ivanov (Bulgaria, Employers Group), Veselin Mitov (Bulgaria, Workers Group) and Bogomil Nikolov (Bulgaria, Various interests Group), supported by Milen Minchev, EESC secretariat.
