Civil Society

Meetings with representatives of non-govermental organizations and experts 

​        Civil society is one of the pillars of democracy. GISDI as a Bulgarian civil society organization, has always been emphasising on the role of nongovermental organizations in defence of human and civil rights of people in electoral compaign.
