Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia: humanitarian evacuation and the international response to refugees from Kosovo

Since the early stages of the refugee outflow, Amnesty International has had a research presence in Macedonia and in Albania, interviewing refugees as well as representatives of international and local agencies. In May, the organization published its report Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia: The Protection of Kosovo Albanian Refugees (AI Index: EUR 65/03/99), and expressed its concerns regarding the quality of protection being afforded to refugees in Macedonia by both the host country and the international community. This report is based on further research into the situation in Macedonia, and should be read in conjunction with the earlier report.
