Syrian Refugees in Bulgaria: A Double Edged Sword

Syrian Refugees in Bulgaria: A Double Edged Sword is a report prepared by FCJ Refugee Centre after a delegation from Canadian Council for Refugees visit Bulgaria in June 2014.

This visit had variety of goals including better understand the complex situation of Syrian asylum-seekers and refugees in Bulgaria.

This understanding was facilitated by interviews with key stakeholders including state agencies, NGOs, Syrian refugees, as well as visits to immigration reception centers in Bulgaria.

A short video was also produced to reproduce parts of the conducted interviews and comments gathered during the visit.

This short documentary developed by FCJ Refugee Centre shows interview excerpts from our meetings with Bulgarian organizations as well as residents of the immigration reception centre in Sofia.

This documentary is complementary to the document Syrian Refugees in Bulgaria: A Double Edged Sword, a report of the FCJ Refugee Centre from the visit to Bulgaria in June 2014.
