ACT Study Trip to Skopje
 

On November 30, 2004, a group of students and faculty from the American College of Thessaloniki traveled to Skopje on a day-long study trip.  The group, which consisted of 20 students from five countries, was led by Nenad Sebek and David Wisner, who were also accompanied by ACT instructors Maria Kyriakidou, and Joseph Gratale.

The purpose of the trip was to meet with leading public figures to discuss the “Macedonian Question.”  The group conferred with representatives of the Open Society Initiative and other NGOs, and with journalists at Skopje-based Forum Magazine.  The group also saw the national parliament, took a tour of the old town, and met with members of different ethnic groups in the city.  Prior to returning to Thessaloniki the group stopped in Gevgelija for dinner at Marshall Tito’s favorite lamb restaurant.

Back in Thessaloniki the same study group met subsequently with Professor Sfetas, a Greek Balkanologist at the Institute for Balkan Studies, for another perspective and follow-up discussion on the Macedonian issue.
