Project Description: After a period of mistrust between Macedonia and Albania during the year 2001, this was the first time that public personalities from both countries – politicians, members of parliament, media leaders, opinion-makers, representatives of NGO-s, university lecturers, businessmen, members of local authorities on cross border area, members of ethnic Albanians in Macedonia and representatives of Macedonian minority in Albania – joined in a forum to jointly exert their influence on the publics and policy makers to enhance the bilateral understanding and cooperation. The project implemented by IDM and Euro-Balkan evolved in three stages.
