CSD » CE IC Sofia » Profile



The Information and Documentation Centre on the Council of Europe in Sofia was officially inaugurated on 13 December 1993 by Ms. Catherine Lalumiere and Dr. Zhelyu Zhelev. 
The Centre organises conferences, seminars, discussions and public lectures. The problem areas most often addressed include human rights, democratic institutions and practices, and minorities. These events provide opportunities for the exchange of ideas and experience between Council of Europe and Bulgarian experts and contribute to the introduction of Council of Europe standards in different spheres of Bulgarian social life. The Centre also organises exhibitions, presentations, competitions and press conferences with the Bulgarian delegation to the Parliamentary Assembly.
