The Institute of Modern Politics (IMP) is an independent non-partisan and public benefit policy institute based in Sofia, Bulgaria. It brings together lawyers and political science experts who share a deep interest in good governance and human rights issues.

Since December 2009 IMP publishes regular monitoring reports on parliamentary conduct and legislative developments – “State of Parliamentarian Rule”, which is widely distributed to the institutions, NGOs and the media. In February 2011 IMP addressed the European Commission and the European Parliament with a “Special Report on Acts of Government and Security Services in Bulgaria which Threaten or Openly Violate Citizens’ Rights and Freedoms” which had a significant impact on public awareness in Bulgaria.

IMP is also an active participant in Bulgarian constitutional justice – the Bulgarian Constitutional Court in a number of its resolutions designates IMP as an interested party in important constitutional cases.

The institute is also one of the leading opinion polls agencies in Bulgaria.

IMP is awarded Second Place “Think Tank of Europe 2012” by the British Prospect Magazine.
