ENS caught up with Valeria Ilareva, the Head Lawyer and the Chairperson of the Foundation for Access to Rights, a Bulgaria based civil society organisation and a longstanding ENS member. Valeria has more than 18 years of experience in the field of migration and asylum law. We spoke about the recent introduction of a statelessness determination procedure in Bulgaria, the importance of commuications work and the impact of the government’s COVID-19 measures on marginalised groups.
“Currently in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic the biggest challenge is the uncertainty and not knowing for how long this state of emergency will last.”
