Call for Papers

“The State, Society and Law: Albanians, 25 years from the changes of systems”.
The main aim of the conference is to stimulate debate amongst academicians, experts, representatives of national and international organizations, regional government authorities and interest groups, etc., in order to present their most important findings for issues, problems, and processes of major interest, which are present between Albanians in the region.
2015 signs the 25th year of the change of political systems in Albania, but also in the region, an event with major influence in the history of the Albanian state, the Albanian society, but also of all the Albanians wherever they are located. The change in the political system opened a completely new prospective of the relations between Albanians and their position in the region. The promise for European integration was and still remains the leading leitmotiv of the transition, accompanied by the constant efforts for building the rule of law state and the functional democracy. Albania is NATO member state; Kosovo is the newest state in Europe, Albanians in Macedonia and in the region have a constitutional, political and economical situation very different from the one they were 25 years ago.
The achievements and challenges are associated with difficulties and problems, the solution of which continues to be part of the decision making agendas, and no changes are expected in the near future. Based on this estimation and the importance of the 25th anniversary of the political changes, Albanians have the opportunity to make their balance of transition, in the political, legal, economic, social and cultural aspect.
