Ethnic Macedonians of
Serbiaare an officially recognized ethnic minorityin Serbia.
During the years
1945- 1992, ethnic Macedonians and the Macedonian Languagewas a constituent part of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. Many Ethnic Macedoniansmigrated to other parts of the federation. This migration was most prevalent in the Socialist Republic of Serbiaand the Socialist Autonomous Province of Vojvodina. In 2002 there was 25,847 Ethnic Macedoniansin Central Serbiaand 11,785 in Vojvodina. In 2004, Serbia and Macedonia signed an inter-state agreement on the protection of Macedonians in Serbia and Serbians in Macedonia.
There are many Macedonian concentrations in the
Vojvodinaregion. Macedonians made up a significant minority in the municipalities of Plandiste, Jabuka, Glogonj, Dužineand Kacarevo.In these areas they comprise over 25% of the population. These are mainly comprised of economic migrants from the Socialist Republic of Macedoniawho left in the 1960's and 1970's due to the worsening economic situation back home.
Associations such as “The Society of Serbian and Macedonian Friendship Šar – planina” seatedin Belgrade, and the “Municipal Society of Serbian-Macedonian Friendship” seated inZrenjanin cover issues related to ethnic, cultural and economic cooperation in
Serbia. In 2005Macedonians in Serbia also established a National Minority Council, whichrepresents as a step towards safeguarding their interests. Jovo Radevski was elected asits president. The Democratic Party of Macedoniansis the primary minority party. It is centered in Novi Sad.
Currently there is no specific program to educate students in Macedonian. Yet there are attempts to introduce
Macedonian languageclasses into areas where there is a significant minority.
Macedonian print media consists primarily of the monthly political journal “Makedonska videlina” produced by the “Macedonian Information and Publishing Centre” in
Pancevo. Limited Macedonian television is available through TV Novi Sad and the local station TV Pancevo, in addition to programs which reach the community from Macedonia. Macedonian is not used in official communications in Serbia, but the Macedonian National Minority Councilis attempting to officialise it in Pancevoand Jabuka.
