  • Chance for the pro-reform actors

    EPI strongly supports the announced use of targeted sanctions against any individuals that have acted against the implementation of the Przhino Agreement. At the same time, we discourage measures that would have an adverse effect on the overall population. Hence, we oppose to the immediate withdrawal of the recommendation for beginning of the negotiations for EU accession, in the midst of the strong civic mobilization we have witnessed over the last two weeks. We deem that a chance as well as support should be given to the pro-reform actors in the changing circumstances on the ground.

  • EPI #Brexit

    The decision of the British people on the exit of their country from the EU impacts not only them and the other citizens of the EU, but also the citizens from the countries aspiring to join the EU. The message from the UK arrived in Macedonia this morning is one dear to the ears of nationalists and anti-reformists, and a discouraging one for the believers in the European idea. For the Republic of Macedonia #Brexit is especially regretful, as the UK was one of its key supporters in the integration to the EU. We hope that after the shock of the #Brexit the EU will rejuvenate its own integration dynamics, bringing also a new vision and narrative to the integration process of the Western Balkans countries.
