Summary

On 11 and 12 July the Mission, in co-operation with the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MoIA), organised a two-day workshop in Ohrid on policing in a multi-ethnic society. Approximately 40 police officers, of different ethnicities working in Ohrid and Bitola police stations/offices attended the event and exchanged information and experiences related to multi-ethnic policing. The workshop also served as a platform for generating ideas on future measures to foster effective functioning of ethnically mixed police units and ensure the acceptance and equal treatment of police officers from non-majority communities. The workshop is part of the Mission’s efforts to strengthen police capacities and to build trust
across multi-ethnic communities.
