In Macedonia, a volunteering legal framework was adopted in 2007 (Official Gazette 85/07).
The law on volunteering sets out the basic framework of organised long-term volunteering,
conditions for carrying out volunteer activities, rights and obligations of volunteers and
organisers of volunteering, volunteering contract and keeping record of volunteer activities. The
law recognises volunteering as an activity of interest in Macedonia that contributes to better
quality of life and activates citizens in social life, as well as a tool for development of democratic
society based on equality.
