EUROPA: Streit um den Namen Mazedonien infographic

Mazedonien steht knapp vor Eingigung über den Namen mit Griechenland

Graphic News

June 12, 2018 -- Griechenland und Mazedonien sind mutmaßlich kurz vor Abfassung eines Konzepts für eine Vereinbarung, die den jahrzehntelangen Streit über den Namen Mazedonien beilegen sollte. Allerdings scheinen die bisherigen Vorschläge nicht den Erwartungen zu entsprechen.

Greece wants the former Yugoslav republic to change or modify its name to avoid any claim to the territory and ancient heritage of Greece’s region of Macedonia – birthplace of ancient warrior king Alexander the Great.

A resolution of the dispute would see Greece lift its objections to Macedonia’s accession to NATO.

But Greek opponents of the deal – that would likely rename the Balkan republic as “North” or “New” Macedonia – say it would not go far enough.

21 days to go until NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming days I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
