Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a brief analysis of the roots of the Macedonian conflict. It provides an overview of events in Macedonia from February to August 2001. Domestic and international attempts to end the fighting receive attention, as do the negotiations leading to the Framework Agreement of 13 August 2001. It the analyses the main measures proposed in the Framework Agreement and an assessment of the formal grounds the document provides for power-sharing. The chapter also examines domestic and international reactions to the Framework Agreement, as well as the complex and to-date incomplete process of implementation. It assesses the Framework Agreement's prospects for bringing a durable resolution to the conflict which prompted its drafting. From this analysis, it can be concluded that Macedonia constitutes neither a successful case of power-sharing nor a failed one, but rather a potential case of powersharing at a crucial juncture.

Keywords: Framework Agreement; Macedonian conflict; negotiations; power-sharing
