exchange of innovative educational methods and good practices to address the challenges arising in the education and training system. It organized the training course Tipping Point - Understanding and Tackling Extremism

Founded in late 1989, the Center for the Study of Democracy (CSD) is an interdisciplinary public policy institute dedicated to the values of democracy and market economy. CSD is a non-partisan, independent organization fostering the reform process in Europe through impact on policy and civil society. SD objectives are:
* to provide an enhanced institutional and policy capacity for a successful European integration process, especially in the area of justice and home affairs
* to promote institutional reform and the practical implementation of democratic values in legal and economic practice
* to monitor public attitudes and serve as a watchdog of the institutional reform process.
Building bridges is the old-fashioned way of bringing together social actors and cementing new alliances. Born as a think-tank, the Center for the Study of Democracy has evolved into policy development through dialogue and partnership. Bringing cutting-edge solutions to transition problems is our way of keeping the middle ground between academia and social practice. The CSD has pioneered in several areas traditionally perceived as the inviolable public property, such as anti-corruption institutional reform, and national security. Our belief is that bringing a new culture of cooperation and trust in a milieu of inherited fragmentation and opacity is equally rewarding as the achievement of concrete social goals. Center for the Study of Democracy analysed the threats associated with different manifestations of radicalisation in Bulgaria (including Islamist, far right and far left radicalisation and football hooliganism) and developed a set of methodologies for monitoring radicalisation risks and trends in extremism. And it participated in projects as Countering Radicalisation in Southeast and Central Europe Through Development of (Counter-) Radicalisation Monitoring Tool (RAD MONITOR)
