The research brings out some problems in the contexts of which LAP works, such as: lack of statistics, lack of adequate data, lack of united knowledge on working of the institutions, lack of clear vision in the legislation, old hard-working structure of the state administration and lack of connection with the reality in its work. It became clear that in the more and more unstable political environment the institutions frequently do not synchronize their efforts what results as negative impact for children.
Representatives of organizations working on other ‘small’ projects gave a short review on the progress of their activities. It was decided clear unification of terminology to be done for better future work and Strategic Planning of LAP to be reviewed at a special meeting of LAP members.
During the event the participants discussed on the sensitivity of children towards some ‘innocent’ forms of violence and the tendency of Bulgarian schools to have higher level of tolerance towards bulling. The members of LAP found that the low sensitivity on the topic of violence and its different kinds in society as a whole remains a problem.
