As a result of a permanent partnership established with the Public Policy Institute and the Hanns Seidel Foundation, the CDRSEE will work together with the aforementioned institutions in the implementation of a permanent series of Bulgarian-Greek expert seminars taking place every year alternately in Bulgaria and in Greece.
The initiative aspires to evolve into a regular forum of dialogue on topics pertaining to the current and future affairs of Europe, the Balkans, the contemporary global challenges as well as on topics related to the democratic institutions and the civil society participation in the two countries.
This first bilateral forum that took place in the town of Sandanski, Bulgaria, on 16-18 October 2018, hosted 20 policy experts from both countries who engaged in a thoughtful dialogue under the topic 'Democracy in Crisis'. The second event of the series will be organised in spring 2019, expectantly in Thessaloniki, Greece.
