Innocenti Working Papers Children in Bulgaria: Growing impoverishment and unequal opportunities AUTHOR(S) Roumiana Gantcheva Published: 2001 Innocenti Working Papers The social and economic changes in Bulgaria since the beginning of transition naturally raise concern about their impact on child well-being.
