In an example of successful international intervention, Macedonia was spared yet another Balkan war in 2001. However, the Ohrid Agreement, brokered by US and EU mediators, does not itself guarantee stability. Macedonia faces several continuing challenges, including government foot-dragging on implementation of Ohrid, and endemic – and fully multiethnic – corruption that continues to undermine the institutions on which the Agreement must rest. Macedonia also faces external challenges due to the uncertain status of Kosovo, and from the refusal of neighboring states to recognize fully the Macedonian identity.

Our Macedonia reports are listed below, starting with the most recent. You can also search for relevant reports using the search box in the top right hand side of this page.
