Russia’s invasion of Ukraine posed new challenges for the EU. Millions were forced to flee the war. As a result of the scale of people’s displacement, the EU activated for the first time the Temporary Protection Directive (TPD). More than 1.3 million children sought international protection in the EU.
Fundamental Rights Agency of the EU issued a bulletin that explores the respect, protection and fulfilment of the fundamental rights of displaced children and ways to safeguard their rights in Bulgaria. Country reports from different EU Member States constitute the background material for the creation of the bulletin.
CSD contributed to the bulletin by carrying out the research in Bulgaria and producing a country report as background material for the comparative analysis.
The full report and all national background studies are available on the FRA website here.
