Title: EUROPEANIZATION FROM BELOW - CIVIL SOCIETY MONITORING OF BULGARIA’S ACCESSION TO THE EU
 
Author: Svetlozar Andreev
 
Description: This paper looks at how civil society has been monitoring the progress achieved by Bulgaria in meeting the criteria for EU membership. A special attention has been paid to the modes of civic and special interest groups’ participation in trying to influence the relevant domestic and international actors by evoking the goal of EU membership and by assessing, at the same time, whether the necessary measures related to achieving accession in the EU have been taken in practice. The dual aim of this research has been to determine how and to what extent civil society (a) could influence the Europeanization of domestic institutions and policies within the context of the most recent EU enlargement, and (b) whether Bulgarian civic and special interest groups would become Europeanized themselves, both collectively and individually, and thus, may be transform themselves.
