The Macedonia name issue: Solved at last?
Light lunch provided.
The difference between Greece and the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia over the name of the small country dominated the bilateral relations between the two countries since 1991, blocking FYROM’s euro Atlantic perspectives and damaging regional understanding and cooperation. Since the beginning of 2018, the government of SYRIZA in Greece renewed its efforts to find a solution and tackle and agreement with the other side. As a result, in June the Prespes Agreement was signed between the two governments, amidst important reactions from the opposition in the two countries. Will the two sides be able to fulfill all the requirements of a complex and difficult agreement and let the country move towards NATO and the EU? Can the two societies live with this agreement? How will the next day be? All these points and many others will be analyzed during the presentation.
