Hristijan Gjorgievski currently serves as Parliamentary Affairs Adviser to the Prime Minister of the Republic of North Macedonia, Zoran Zaev. Gjorgievski is also a member of the government’s task-force charged with implementing North Macedonia’s NATO membership action plan, and coordinates the government’s work to protect and preserve the country’s only UNESCO world heritage site.
Previously Hristijan spent eight years working as an international development professional, focused on democratic and political development in the Balkans and Pakistan. In his previous position, Gjorgievski helped facilitate national political dialogue among Pakistan’s 10 major political parties to reform the country’s tribal areas, on the border with Afghanistan; an effort which ultimately resulted in abolishing the 1901 imperial code governing the region, bringing its inhabitants under the protection of Pakistan’s Constitution, as equal citizens. Furthermore, Gjorgievski helped strengthen political parties’ presence and organization in the tribal areas, and assisted elected officials in addressing citizen concerns in their respective border constituencies.
Hristijan holds a master’s degree in international relations from the Johns Hopkins University’s School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS). He obtained his bachelor degree, with full honors, in political science and French language. Hristijan speaks English and French, and uses German and Italian. He is trying to learn Hindi.
