Macedonia: The EU’s Democratic Dilemma

Bosnia-Herzegovina will try to present its application for EU membership by the end of January. As the debate on EU enlargement continues, questions remain about Europe’s legacy in Macedonia. Nikola Dimitrov, distinguished fellow at The Hague Institute for Global Justice, discusses the “EU’s Democratic Dilemma“.

“The EU played a key role in brokering an accord between the main Macedonian parties in July. Now it has an opportunity to protect the overarching objective of democracy and the rule of law.”

Nikola Dimitrov, Distinguished Fellow
