Maria Pancheva, a historian by education, has worked at the CSP-NBU since 1995, starting while still at school. In the intervening years, Maria has concentrated on community research and field studies, minority integration and policy analysis, media trainings. She has also been the editor of most of CSP’s published output, and was assistant-editor of The Insider magazine until its demise in 2000. Maria has focused increasingly on practical hands-on policy work with government, municipalities and political parties and has also headed a number of community-centered practical projects, such as policy toward “minority” schools and the introduction of the Ombudsman institution at municipal level.
