The French Embassy in Macedonia, the International Institute for Human Rights and Peace, the Faculty of Law in Skopje and the Faculty of Law in Caen along with the decentralised cooperation between the Lower Normandy Region and Macedonia organised a study day with a view to compare the Macedonian and French labour law. The event took place on February 21st at the Faculty of Law in Skopje.

The employment agreement, the relationship between employer and employee, the legal proceedings in contentious cases, and the discrimination were among the issues that were addressed during the conference. The fruitful discussions between the experts, students and other participants contributed to deepening the mutual knowledge.

There were only positive impressions of the study day. The participants and the public consider that this is an important step forward towards harmonisation of the Macedonian legal system with the Europeans standards and they acknowledge this initiative and structured exchange that will further develop. The documents from the seminar will be published in French and Macedonian language in order to constitute the first volume of the future collection of the French and Macedonian comparative law that the Institute wishes to produce.

The International Institute for Human Rights and Peace is a partner to several Macedonian organisations within the framework of the decentralised cooperation between the Lower Normandy Region and Macedonia with which it actively cooperates on the topic of human rights.
