Abstract [en]

Macedonia is one of the new countries of East-Central Europe that dreamt of democracy and a return to Europe following the collapse of communism. The dream persists, but progress towards its realization has so far been slow. The triple transition needed in the transformation of Macedonia into a stable liberal democracy is not yet fully implemented - the country remains a grey-zone democracy struggling to deal with a weak economy and lingering ethnic tensions. The article explores Macedonia's triple transition and explains why the transformation has been so difficult. It is argued that Macedonia's transitional problems are likely to persist for some time and that the political trajectory has still to be determined. Macedonia will need to progress in all three transitional dimensions if the country is to reach its goal of future membership of the European Union and NATO.
