Bulgarian agriculture: macrosocial transformation and social interrelationship
Plamena Yovchevska
Abstract: The aim in this article is to present a conceptual model of the transformation problem in Bulgarian agriculture and the process of its development. The model allows analytically distinguishing activities in the economic, political and socio-cultural spheres with an impact on the quality of the living environment. With the help of this model, main mechanisms (tools) could be highlighted to illuminate the researched process with examples of the transformation in other Central European countries after 1989. The research is aimed at revealing the paradigm of social interrelationship and synergistic opportunities for potential benefits from combining the influence of the political factor – the transformation and the community agricultural policy; and economic activity – the socio-economic prerequisites and the national socio-cultural specifics with the human living environment. The research reveals processes of structural dichotomy, concentration of agricultural land in an ever smоller number of farms and expansion of the production of extensive crops at the expense of intensive productions.
