National conference on 7 July in Skopje

The Civil Society Index of RM and CIVICUS

The Civil Society Index (IGO) is an action-research project whose aim is to assess the condition of the civil society in the countries throughout the world in order to provide basic understanding and to give contribution to the initiatives for strengthening the civil society.

IGO is implemented by the Macedonian Centre for International Cooperation with an approval from the international organization for civil society, CIVICUS. Active members in its implementation are also the National Index Team (NIT) consisting of several experts from different organizations and the officers in charge from the MCIC and the National Counseling Group consisting of 20 representatives from different civil society organizations and other institutions.

The members of NIT prepared the draft-version of the National Report which was examined by the National Counseling Group in May 2005. The report will also be discussed at the National Conference arranged for 7 July 2005 in Skopje.

The Conference goals are:

-  To present and discuss the findings from the report on OGO;
-  To use the findings as a basis for identifying the strengths and the weaknesses of the civil society, if possible;
-  To identify and plan appropriate initiatives for its strengthening.

About 70 representatives from the civil society organizations, the media, the government and the business-sector will take part at the Conference.

“Give pleasure to your boss!!!”
These days, a new commercial about a new coffee brand appeared on TV. I presume you’ve already seen it. A secretary slips when bringing coffee to her boss, slides down his desk on her stomach to stop in front of him with the coffee in her hand? I am not sure how you react to it, but after I had seen it for the first time I was left with my mouth open. It was a mixed feeling of bewilderment, sickness, disbelief…how could somebody think of something like that? How could nobody react to this commercial?

Expeditio, Kotor, Montenegro
Our vision is a quality space for better life
We decided to make an unusual interview with three people, as they themselves are unusual, as well as the association they are members of. Aleksandra Kapetanovic, Biljana Gligorovic and Tatjana Rajic are three young architects, who dedicate their creativity, knowledge and enthusiasm to cultural heritage, architecture, spatial planning and the civic sector in Montenegro, particularly focused on Boka Kotorska and its surroundings.

My attitude towards the language
“People who are of the same origin and who speak the same words and who live and make friends of each other, who have the same customs and songs and entertainment are what we call a nation, and the place where that people lives is called the people's country. Thus the Macedonians also are a nation and the place which is theirs is called Macedonia.”
Armenian community in the Republic of Macedonia
About 110 families cherish both the Armenian and the Macedonian culture
The genesis of the Armenian communities on the territory of today’s Macedonia goes back to the medieval times as can be proved by the numerous papers, traveling notes by foreign travelers who stayed or passed through the towns where among other nations, lived the Armenians.
