How is Free Speech Being Eroded in Bulgaria?
25.09.2015 @ 17:00 - 19:30
On September 25, 2015 Human and Social Studies Foundation – Sofia launched another public debate in the frame of the project Civic practice for students and teachers. Post 2011 protests, funded by the NGO Programme in Bulgaria under the European Economic Area Financial Mechanism 2009-2014 (www.ngogrants.bg) on How is Free Speech Being Eroded in Bulgaria? Key-speakers in the debate were Petko Georgiev (journalist, international media consultant), Spas Spasov (journalist, Capital weekly, Dnevnik.bg), Gorgi Lozanov (Chair of the Council for Electronic Media), moderator of the debate Prolet Velkova (journalist, radio Darik). The common ground that there is a standing and long-term issue with freedom of speech in Bulgaria leaded to the most debated questions as: What were the reasons for the censorship and auto-censorship in the media? How were they linked to the form of financing? What were the high and low tides in the interrelationship between media and civic society?
