Abstract

The paper will analyze the promotion of democracy of the European Union towards Republic of Macedonia, with a focus on the implementation of the standard for providing fair and democratic elections. The research will be conducted by analyzing the European Commission progress reports for Republic of Macedonia with a cross reference to the election reports from ODHIR (OSCE). The purpose of the analysis will be to examine the value of democracy of the European Union in confront to its democracy promotion towards the Republic of Macedonia, in order to define the coherency and consistency of EU’s foreign policy towards Macedonia, that is to determine whether or not double standards exist between the EU’s vision of ‘democracy’ and what it really promotes in its foreign policy towards the Republic of Macedonia. The outcome of the analysis will give feedback about the impact of the European Union on Macedonia’s current political crisis.
