Bulgaria on the Threshold of the European Union: Trilateral Co-operation and Development of Industrial Relations (September 2003 - October 2004)

01-09-2003

The project was aimed at establishing an effective system for trilateral co-operation and dialogue between social partners in the field of industrial relations in Bulgaria on the basis of European historical experience and the principles laid down in the European Social Charter ratified in 2000.

 

The project was implemented within the enlisted by PHARE ACCESS 2000 Program priorities related to the adoption and adaptation of EU Community law as well as European practices in the field of social and economic development. Practical instruments were applied to test several models and mechanisms for partnership and representation of interests of each participant in the trilateral dialogue. These models and mechanisms are pertinent to the European legislative principles.

 

The project offers complete systematic assessment of the achievements and deficits of trilateral partnerships, which are the main mechanisms of social co-operation in Bulgaria at present and develops an effective system for interaction of organized interests in the public sphere as an instrument for political representation, which are complementary to the institutions of parliamentary democracy.
