Supporting Democracy in Multi-Ethnic Macedonia - Dialogue and Cooperation


The project seeks to strengthen multi-ethnic democracy and stability in Macedonia (FYROM). The focus is on strengthening the capacities of young grass roots civil society activists. The immediate objectives are to increase self-motivated inter-ethnic cooperation, disseminate knowledge and increase awareness of inter-ethnic relations and to facilitate the formation of networks to forge contact and cooperation between activist and relevant Civil Society Organisations (CSO). The practical means to achieve the objectives are inter-ethnic capacity building workshops and study circles, training of trainers and training sessions on inter-ethnic relations, and building networks of activists and CSOs to increase impact of efforts to promote tolerance and good inter-ethnic relations. The project builds on the achievements and the needs that have been identified as well as the lessons learnt in previous projects.
