The Council of Europe held an event on November 25, 2013 to "celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Framework Convention (for the Protection of National Minorities)".

It would have been more appropriate to revisit the failures of the implementation of the Framework Convention. A perfect opportunity would have been the Advisory Committee’s third visit to Bulgaria, which took place from November 11-15, 2013. Bulgaria has ratified the agreement but is free to continue denying the existence of its Macedonian minority, execute state-sponsored discrimination and ignore various European Court of Human Rights rulings in favour of the Macedonian minority.

Scholarly conference on the partition of Macedonia a great success

The Australian Macedonian Human Rights Committee (AMHRC) was honoured to host an international scholarly conference on the Partition of Macedonia and the Balkan Wars of 1912-13.

The conference was held at the Monash University Law Chambers from 4-7 September 2013.

The aim of the conference was to attempt a historical survey of the context and the effects, both short and long term, of the partition of Macedonia on the inhabitants of Macedonia, from a variety of perspectives, especially linguistic, sociological, anthropological and political.
