Since the early 1990's the political elite and the public have shared the opinion that joining the European integration and NATO is both a priority and an instrument for achieving Macedonia's national political goals. This paper gives a short overview of Macedonia's experience in transformation, democratization and decentralization. The decision at the NATO summit in Bucharest not to invite Macedonia generated dilemmas and controversies on whether NATO membership is more important than the country's identity expressed in its name.
