The path of mediation in the Republic of North Macedonia

Mediation as an alternative way of resolving disputes was first introduced in the Republic of North Macedonia by the Law on Mediation of 2006, succeeded by a new law adopted in 2013, and then the current law on Mediation (hereinafter: the Law), which was adopted by the Parliament in December 2021.

The purpose of enacting the new law was to address mediation-related reforms as one of the strategic objectives of the Justice Sector Reform Strategy 2017-2022.

Despite the adoption of the new law and the novelties it introduced, the potential advantages that mediation brings are not fully exploited by citizens.
