THE FRAMEWORK AGREEMENT. A Problematic Blueprint for Macedonia A distinction, however, needs to be drawn between the conflict between the Macedonian and Albanian communities that has been latent since 1991 and the armed confrontation that occurred last year. Most Macedonians and a growing number of international analysts maintain that last year’s mini-war had little to do with instituting rights for the Albanians. According to this view, the Framework Agreement fails to take into account the more immediate reasons behind the war, such as previously mentioned, organized crime and the question of Kosovo. Yet it would be misleading to deny that throughout the 1990s the conflict between Macedonians and Albanians did, at least in part, concern the question of rights. Thus, the Agreement does address some of the issues that divided the two communities during Macedonia’s first decade of independence. As such, the Agreement represents an amendment to the legal structures of the Macedonian political system, aimed at creating more symmetrical power relations between the Macedonian and Albanian communities. Nonetheless, many Macedonians, as well as their politicians, harbour a deep dislike for the Framework Agreement, which they consider to be imposed on them by the international community in response to Albanian ‘terrorism’. According to Aleksandar Damovski, editor of the Macedonian daily Dnevnik, the provisions set forth in the Agreement were legitimate, but not the means used to achieve them: I find the constitutional changes that improve the civic character of our state necessary, and that they would have come into being even without the military pressure of the Albanians. The main problem is that it all happened as a result of the aggression by the Albanian terrorists in Macedonia, and therefore the agreement signed in Ohrid looks like the result of those terrorist activities. (South Slavic Report 2001: v. 3 no. 32). Hence, there is a risk that Macedonian resentment towards the Agreement, and towards the Albanian population, might eventually prompt an aggressive backlash, which would further undermine the prospects for peace. Whether such a reaction from the Macedonian community occurs depends in part on whether it continues to perceive the international community as working against Macedonian interests. In a report by the United States Institute of Peace (USIP) several factors are identified that pose an obstacle to effective implementation of the Framework Agreement, including “[c]rim...
THE FRAMEWORK AGREEMENT. The Danish Energy Agency is not required to use this Framework Agreement when purchasing consultants which are within the scope of this Framework Agreement. Thus, it is possible for the Danish Energy Agency to purchase consultants through other Framework Agreements, through independent EU-Tenders or in other ways. However, the Danish Energy Agency's internal guidelines clearly indicate that this Framework Agreement is to be used for all purchases of consultants falling within the scope of the Framework Agreement, and it should therefore be an exception that the consultants in question are purchased differently.
