Monitoring Forced Return in Bulgaria: Analytical Report

The current report provides recommendations based on analysis of data from independent monitoring of 15 forced-return operations of illegally staying third-country nationals carried out between August 2016 and December 2018. The report is a first-ever analysis of findings from forced-return operations in Bulgaria and makes recommendations for the establishment of a national mechanism for monitoring forced return, optimization of the monitoring process and full implementation of its objectives. The monitoring of 15 operations was carried out as part of the fulfillment of Bulgaria's commitment to provide for an effective forced-return monitoring system introduced in the Bulgarian legislation in 2013 in accordance with Directive 2008/115/EC.
