Abstract

The Council Regulation (EC) 1085/2006 adopted in 17 July 2006 and its implementation defined in Commission Regulation (EC) 718/2007 created IPA funds. Very similar like the previous funds: PHARE, CARDS, SAPARD, ISPA, IPA funds operate in the same direction for the pre-accession countries. The primary goal is to better implement the EU Structural Funds and help the countries as Macedonia that are on the way to join the Union to learn how to manage them. The principal research objective of the paper is: presenting the role of the current EU funds, especially (IPA) funds eligible for Macedonia, the institutional capacity of the governmental organizations in the country to get those funds and the results of using (IPA) funds in the fields of institutions, regional and rural development, cross-border cooperation and human resource development in the country. The scope of the research in this paper is covering explanation of the above-mentioned objective and will depends on the knowledge and available data that exists in the literature and practice about the usage of (IPA) funds in sustaining the institutional, regional, rural, cross-border and human resource development in Macedonia. In correlation with the main objective and scope of the analysis in the paper, the research will concentrate in answering the following research questions: What are the current EU funds available for Macedonia? How (IPA) funds are used and implemented? What is the problematic link between institutions and organizations which are eligible to apply for funds and actually getting those funds, which showed to be a major issue during the application process? For the purpose of writing the paper, we employed a combination of different methodology aspects that are based on: content analysis of various governmental documents and research papers that are dealing with (IPA) funds and their usage in sustaining the institutional, regional, rural, cross-border and human resource development in Macedonia. Also, we used administrative databases and numerical data for the purpose of explaining the research issues and deduction approach is applied through the content analysis.
