In a paper produced by EAPN Bulgaria for the Bulgarian Recovery Plan, they point out that the crisis could be a period of opportunities. “How well these opportunities will be used determines where societies will be headed for – sustainable development and recovery or ‘take a short breath’ and then again plunge into the wave of a following crisis“.
EAPN Bulgaria argues that the key point splitting explicitly these two possible trajectories is whether the opportunity will be seized to spotlight the causes for the crisis. The network also argues that “The intervention of civil society and specifically of NGOs, engaged in poverty and exclusion issues, must identify which initiative/s is going to shape a better awareness of the crisis and, consequently, a better outline of adequate measures for bailout“.
