Bulgaria – Protecting migrants with precarious status: decreasing the use of detention and applying community-based alternatives


Center for Legal Aid – Voice in Bulgaria (CLA) with Bulgarian Lawyers for Human Rights (BLHR)

The Case Management team will engage over two years with a total of 50-60 migrants with return orders, providing holistic support on an individual basis, with the goal of avoiding the need to detain them and decreasing the risk of absconding, while helping them stabilize in the community until case resolution (obtaining legal status or return to country of origin or third country) is attained.
