Macedonians in Albania Call for Cultural and Educational Autonomy


The Delegates of the Member Organisations of the Federal Union of European Nationalities (FUEN) adopted the following resolution at their Assembly of Delegates in Bratislava/Pozsony/Pressburg, Slovakia, on 15 June 2019:

Resolution regarding the improvement of the educational policy for the Macedonian minority in Albania

The Macedonian Association “Ilinden“ - Tirana and the Macedonian national minority in the Republic of Albania seek cultural and educational autonomy for the inhabitants of the regions of Golo Brdo, Mala Prespa and Gora in order to preserve the Macedonian culture in these regions inhabited by a purely Macedonian population.
The FUEN therefore calls on the Republic of Albania to:

1. open a Department of Macedonian Language at the state University of Tirana as well as to open a Department of Macedonian Language at the state University “Fan Stilian Noli” of Korca.

2. ensure the representation of the Macedonian national minority in the structures of the State Administration, the local self-governing bodies and those local administration bodies where a significant number of persons belonging to the Macedonian national minority reside.

3. provide the representation of the Macedonian national minority to the steering committee of the State Radio Television.
