A human rights issue gains additional importance with actualizing the human security concept and conflict transformation approach. In fact, through the prism of such concepts, a human rights issue acquires a security dimension, which complements the modern understanding of security on the one hand, and the broader understanding of the conflict transformation process on the other hand. Experience so far in global frameworks shows that human rights, i.e., their violation, are often pointed out as part of the reasons for the emergence and escalation of conflicts. On the other hand, such an issue occupies a central place in the activities related to conflict transformation and post-conflict peacebuilding.
Their importance is further highlighted once they occur in multi-ethnic or multi-religious contexts. In this sense, the paper more specifically analyses the human rights issue impact on the emergence of the conflict in Macedonia in 2001, as well as the managing process of such issue in the post-conflict period. Hence, such analysis should create a clearer framework for understanding the essential aspects of human rights issues, both during the pre-conflict and the post-conflict period, especially through the prism of implementing the Ohrid Framework Agreement.
