Chapter Summary

This chapter reviews the existing system of rights protection in Bulgaria with a focus on the rights of individuals from minorities and other vulnerable groups, and the role of the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) in this process. Section 2 of the chapter examines the basic components of the rights protection mechanism in Bulgaria. In section 3, the chapter offers a retrospective review on mechanisms and motivation for litigation at the ECtHR on claims raising Articles 8-11/14 ECHR and concerning rights of individuals from marginalised groups. Section 4 reviews the ECtHR's jurisprudence on Bulgarian cases concerning rights of individuals from minority and marginalised groups. The cases could be divided roughly into four separate groups: cases concerning state interference in the religious affairs of marginalised groups; racially motivated violence against Roma; prohibition of political parties, and refusals to register a party or an organisation.

Keywords: Bulgarian cases; ECtHR; minority religious groups; political parties; Roma
