Macedonian lawmakers need to add sexual orientation to the list of classes protected from discrimination, and the country’s national antidiscrimination commission should be given stronger authority, according to a set of recommendations issued by two PASOS members working on a joint anti-bias project.

The Center for Economic Development (CED) in Bulgaria and the Center for Research and Policy Making (CRPM) in Macedonia issued the list of recommendation as part of “Exchange of EU best practices in the area of anti-discrimination legislation enforcement,” a project supported by the Delegation of the European Union in Skopje. The recommendations target 10 stakeholder groups, ranging from Macedonian lawmakers to donors who support civil society groups.

The project’s objective is to increase civil society involvement in the enforcement and improvement of Macedonia’s national law on antidiscrimination. The recommendations are the culmination of a year of work on activities connected to the project, which winds down this month. The full list is available for download in three languages: Macedonian, Albanian and English.
