Summary/Abstract: Macedonia is an attention grabbing case for analyzing how a state’s security sector has evolved, and whether it has succeeded in embracing democratic practices or not. Macedonia’s peaceful exit from communist Yugoslavia in the 1990s, its experiences during and after the Internal Armed Conflict in 2001, and its efforts to join the EU and NATO make its recent history ripe for such analysis. The aim of this policy brief is to describe the existing oversight mechanisms of the Macedonian police forces - whether they succeed at implementing proper control of the police forces and the use of force continuum, and what kind of challenges they encounter at their work.
