The South-Εast Europe Programme of ELIAMEP will be conducting in the course of 2018 a research on the progress of the implementation of the Confidence Building Measures between Greece and the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (signed in 2015). This project is the follow-up to a research project that was conducted in 2017 and led to the publication of a report on the issue of cross-border cooperation between Greece and the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia as well as the cooperation between the two countries in the area of higher education. The 2018 research will focus on the implementation of the Confidence Building Measures dealing with Justice and Home Affairs. It will be funded, as it was the case with the previous one, by the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The research institute Analytica, based in Skopje, will conduct a similar research covering the same topic from the point of view of the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.
