Security Sector Reform in Albania
2009

A joint project with Initiative for Peace building (IfP) - a consortium led by International Alert and funded by the European Commission and ELIAMEP the Hellenic Foundation for European and foreign Policy Foundation .Security Sector Reform in Albania

The Study analyses security sector reform (SSR) in Albania. In all its enterprises in reforming the security sector, Albania is assisted by different initiatives and projects that provide expertise and financial support. To assess whether reforms improved the overall security environment (national and human) of the country, it is necessary to measure the effectiveness of the various initiatives and projects. This is gauged by how well the initiatives and projects achieved their defined goals, the level of coordination at the national and international level among those institutions working in the same specific field, and the sustainability and ownership of reforms. The evaluation of SSR in Albania is primarily based on official national documents, national legislation, situation reports of Albanian and international institutions related to reforms in the security sector, and national and international press coverage of security events and incidents.
