Ivan Durgutov

North Macedonia




My name is Ivan Durgutov and I’m a graduate lawyer with a master’s degree in Law from the Sts Cyril and Methodius University in Skopje. Since my secondary school days, I have been a vocal activist in the civic sector, being a member and part of different civic organisations then and now. They include the European Law Students’ Association, the Summer Work&Travel Alumni Association, the Macedonian-American Alumni Association and the European Democracy Youth Network.
One of my biggest achievements and most life-changing experiences was my participation in SUSI 2019, a leadership programme held in the USA, where I was chosen as a scholar by the US Department of State and participated as one of the eighty most promising leaders under-25 from Europe. Besides this, I have been participating in and facilitating various projects, been part of and completed short-term EVS, and have recently been chosen to participate with the last generation at the Swedish Institute Academy for Young Professionals, in the cohort from the Western Balkans. Some of my passions involve advocating for human rights, learning and practising diplomacy while representing my country and my peers, and travelling both nationally and internationally.
