The United Nations Convention on the rights of the child is a part of the Bulgarian legislation since 1991. The main focus of the report is on the legislative measures for implementation of the standards established by the Convention in the legislation of the country. The assessment was made on the basis of regular reports on the fulfilment of the Convention obligations and on the recommendations of The Committee on the rights of the child. The national authority for child protection - The State agency on child protection - as well as its status and powers are introduced. Matters concerning the participation of the country in regional (European) initiatives concerning the rights of the child have also been discussed.

The article in French is dedicated to the analysis of the latest Protocol to the European Convention of Human Rights. The contribution is focused especially on the evaluation of the effectiveness of the control mechanism of the Convention under the Protocol No 14. It deals, besides others, with the modification of the admission criteria of the application, the creation of the new formations of the Court, the introduction of the new competencies of the Council of Ministers and the changes in the term of office of the judges.
European Court of Human Rights applies the margin of appreciation doctrine in order to determine the level of its self-restraint and the latitude of free discretion of states when implementing their Convention obligations. The rationale behind this doctrine is that in certain cases, domestic bodies are in a better position than international judges to provide adequate protection to human rights. In this regard, they should be afforded a margin of appreciation. The Court subsequently only reviews, if the interferences contested by an individual fall within this margin or not. This doctrine was a subject of overwhelming critique because the European Court of Human Rights did not apply it transparently and consistently. Therefore the main goal of this article is to normatively construe an algorithm which could be taken into account by the European Court of Human Rights when applying the doctrine in order to prevent the mentioned critique.
