The collective monograph presents the scientific results of the project The Quality of Democracy in Bulgaria: Democratic Consensus and Citizen Participation", funded by the Scientific Research Fund of the Ministry of Education and Science and implemented by a research team of the Department of Political Science in New Bulgarian University.
Bulgaria is facing serious democratic challenges in a turbulent political environment. Political instability has dominated the scene since mass protests in 2013 and has shaped the country’s democratic debate. Democratic backsliding undermines market values, reduces economic growth potential, and gives rise to nationalism and populism.
- Since 2013, Bulgaria has been in a period of severe political instability and has seen an erosion of democracy, which poses great challenges to the future development of the country.
- The biggest threat to democracy and free enterprise in Bulgaria is the dysfunctional judicial system directly related to widespread corruption issues.
- Democratic backsliding in Bulgaria has manifested itself in state capture, a dependent media, xenophobia, and opportunistic economic policies.
