CSD is interdisciplinary public policy institute committed to the values of democracy and a market economy and the fostering of the reform process in Bulgaria. Its objectives are to provide an enhanced institutional and policy capacity for a successful Euro-Atlantic integration process, promote institutional reform and the practical implementation of democratic values in legal and economic practice, and monitor public opinion and serve as a watchdog of the institutional reform process in the country, among others. CSD has pioneered the establishment of key democratic institutions in Bulgaria and taken the lead in a number of legislative reforms areas. In the last few years, it has been at the forefront in Bulgaria and other countries in Southeastern Europe in researching and advocating policy reform in the security sector. The activities of CSD are structured into four programs: economics, law, Europe, and sociology (Vitosha Research). CSD acts as secretariat to Coalition 2000, a public-private anticorruption initiative in Bulgaria, and the Southeast European Legal Development Initiative (SELDI). Since December 1993, CSD has hosted the Information and Documentation Centre on the Council of Europe.
