Collective Complaint Brought Against Bulgaria on Systemic Violations of the Right to Adequate Housing

21 July 2005

On April 21, 2005 the ERRC brought a Collective Complaint under the Revised European Social Charter against Bulgaria for persistent and systematic violations of the right of the family to social, legal and economic protection. The ERRC alleges that certain commitments under Article 16 of the Revised European Social Charter have not been upheld as the government has adopted or tolerated a range of policies and practices that strike at the fundamental basis of family existence, namely the need for security, privacy and shelter, and freedom from racial and other discrimination.
