Where Is Privatization In Bulgaria Heading To, 1996
The combination of mass and market privatization as a specific element of the Bulgarian model acquires more and more distinct outlines as days go by. On January 8, 1996, mass privatization made its official start by the commencement of the citizens' registration for participation. The dead-line for this phase was extended twice and as a result a little above 40 percent of the eligible Bulgarian population bought their voucher booklets. Despite the not particularly attractive public awareness campaign and the non-participation in it of the privatization funds, a fairly good result was achieved in the registration for participation in the mass privatization process. more »
 
Bulgaria: Summing Up Privatization, April 1996
Over 24,000 entities had been privatized by December 31, 1995. Most units (about 22,000 shops, restaurants, hotels, warehouses, small production enterprises, etc.) passed into private hands through restitution. The specific nature of the recent development of Bulgaria's private sector is determined largely by this restoration of ownership rights to small urban properties. more »
 
Migration - Europe's Integration and the Labour Force Brain-Drain
The report is aiming to answer the questions: What was going on in the science of Bulgaria in the years of transition and the related to it mass emigration of scientists abroad? Was that an occurrence of 'freedom euphoria', or 'a natural process of science internationalization'? What are the results from that process? What are the 'losses' and the 'benefits'? Who was the one 'to lose' and who - 'to win'? What are the perspectives? more »
 
Initial Attitudes Towards Mass Privatization, December 1995
Vitosha Research conducted a social survey to register the attitude of the Bulgarian populace towards mass privatization on the eve of its actual start. The data was collected in November 1995. The survey method was the standardized face-to-face interview. The sample size is 2652 and is representative for the population of Bulgaria aged 18 to 60. The sample is representative separately for the population of Sofia (N = 727), Plovdiv (N = 920) and Varna (N = 967) in the above mentioned age interval. This design of the first quantitative survey was preferred to the national representative sample, because according to preliminary data, information residents in small towns and villages had about the forthcoming mass privatization was extremely low. more »
 
Trade Policy in The Context of Bulgaria’s Accession to the European Union, August 1995

Approximation of Bulgarian to EU Legislation: Protection of Competition, Protection of Intellectual Property and Right of Establishment, August 1995
The significance of the harmonisation of legislation of the associated countries of Central and Eastern Europe (ACCEE) with the legislation of the European Community (EC) was already underlined by the European Council in Copenhagen (21-22 July 1993). The approximation of the Bulgarian legislation with that of the EC is one of the fundamental tasks of the strategy for the preparation of the countries of Central and Eastern Europe to join the Union, adopted at the meeting of the European Council in Essen on 9-10 December 1994. more »

The Use of Bulgarian Foreign Debt Bonds in Privatization, June 1995
Bulgaria is the only country in Central and Eastern Europe to allow the use of foreign debt bonds in privatisation. It is a challenge to introduce a debt-for-equity swap mechanism in a country which is in transition from a centrally planned to a market economy, because of the unique nature of this transition. Of course, it is being carried out based on the considerable experience and analyses of the effect of the debt-for-equity swaps in some countries in Latin America and Africa. The Bulgarian experience is quite modest, since the legal framework of such swaps was enforced only in December 1994. more »
