FYR of Macedonia/ 3.4 International cultural co-operation  

3.4.4 Direct professional co-operation

Direct professional co-operation is also mostly financed by the Ministry of Culture and it represents the main international co-operation in recent years. In 2011 - 2013 the Ministry of Culture supported over 700 international projects of national institutions or NGO's, associations and artists in promoting cultural cooperation with European countries and other parts of the world.

The Final Conference: Culturologue (Project: Evaluation of Cultural Policies and EU-Funded Programmes as Promoters of Cultural Diversity and Intercultural Dialogue in the Balkans / Southeast Europe), organised by the NGO "Multimedia" and supported by the EU, the Ministry of Culture and the Open Society Foundation, took place in May 2014 in Skopje. The conference marked the end of a two-year project aimed to evaluate the impact of national (state) and local (municipal) cultural policies and EU-funded programmes for culture in the countries of the Western Balkans on promoting cultural diversity and intercultural dialogue as part of the EU integration process. Among other things, the report points out that although there are huge international efforts invested in the EU integration of the Region, most of them have social, political and economic priorities. And although the cultural policies in the Balkans focus on promotion of diversity and intercultural dialogue, this aim is not being systematically and co-ordinately realised, especially not in its regional dimension.

In 2015 a Protocol for cooperation was signed between the National Conservation Centre and the Turkish Agency for cooperation and coordination (TIKA). The Protocol foresees realisation of conservation projects on several mosques in Skopje.
