Macedonia, the former Yugoslav Republic of

A landlocked country in the central Balkan peninsula, The Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia borders Kosovo, Serbia, Bulgaria, Greece and Albania. Breaking away from the collapsing Yugoslav State in 1990, Macedonia avoided the worst of the resulting Balkan wars and now operates as a multi-party democracy, where a ceremonial president of the republic works as prime minister. Human rights issues often centre around ethnic minorities - particularly treatment of the ethnic Albanian and Roma communities - as well as domestic violence against children and child trafficking.
