This peace education project started in 2008 and is based on cooperation between the Center for Balkan Cooperation LOJA, based in Tetovo, and the German organization K. Wustrow within the framework of the German Civil Peace Service. It aims at the establishment of a university curriculum on interethnic youth work as integral part of future teachers training in – mainly pedagogical – faculties of the 5 universities in Macedonia. The cooperation with universities is based on legal agreements (memorandum of understandings) with CBC LOJA.




USAID's Interethnic Integration in Education Project (IIEP) is a four year project, that  builds broad public understanding of the benefits to all citizens that will arise from integrating Macedonia's education system. IIEP will also create the political, social and economic environment need for Macedonia to achieve sustained interethnic integration in schools, in other educational institutions and eventually all of society.


The project is formed by 4 components:

  •  Component 1: Community Outreach
  • Component 2: Capacity Building of School Management and Teachers
  •  Component 3: Demonstration Schools
  • Component 4: Providing Incentives to Schools and Communities
