On 11-13 November, FRA participated in a workshop in Slivek organised by the Bulgarian National Statistical Institute.
The purpose of the workshop was to discuss the results of the research phase of the project, in which FRA is a project partner. FRA presented the results of the study focusing on the legal and policy frameworks addressing vulnerable populations in Bulgaria, the indicators that are being used to monitor progress in their inclusion and the existing gaps that might be filled.
The outcomes of the workshop will help prepare for the full scale survey scheduled for the second quarter of 2020. The survey will also administer a streamlined module on 'discrimination, harassment and violence' to allow populating equality indicators comparable across countries.
