Summary/Abstract: Abstract. This article assesses the Macedonian positions in the socalled “name dispute” with Greece. It maintains that, from a Macedonian perspective, such a dispute cannot exist at all, because the basis for all discussion is the unalienable right to self-determination and choice of self-reference for any given people and state. The author traces the policies involved in the issue, on the local Macedonian level, the bilateral Macedonian-Greek level, as well as on the European and further international levels. The author documents her analysis with materials taken from the official statements of national and international actors, public opinion polls, and statements made by influential public intellectuals from Macedonia and the wider Balkan region.
