Macedonia is a country in deep trouble. There is a climate of mistrust between all the political parties; intolerance of minority groups is increasing and fear is also generated by the all-pervasive control of the main governing party. In 2009 the European Commission recommended that a date be set for accession negotiations to start, but since then the country's efforts to join the EU (and NATO) have been blocked. Author Erwan Fouéré sets out ten clear recommendations for both Macedonia and the EU on the way forward.

Erwan Fouéré is Associate Senior Research Fellow at CEPS and former European Union Special Representative and Ambassador,  Head of Delegation in former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.
