The Process of Denationalization in the Republic of Albania from the Perspective of International Law and in the Light of the Countryâ€™s Accession Process to the EU
Keywords:Albania reforms, Public administration, Decentralization, Management Human rights, Court, EU Criteria
The study requires reforming and improving the legal framework, but above all the institutional framework to enable the execution of judicial decisions as part of the right to a fair trial, as well as the importance and consequences of-non-enforcement. Satisfactory implementation of judicial decisions would testify for the well functioning of the rule of law and its basic principles, a fact which is very important especially in Albanian society, also in the context of integration into the European Union standards.
Albania is reforming its society and political mentality to better-fit new needs and responsibilities toward the European Union and western values the country always dreamed. Nevertheless, the political mentality of the past, which today is part of the process of political reformation, is slowing the process of integration toward western values. Political forces somehow are resisting the upgrade of their political mentality to these newer western political concepts. Albania had made big steps reforming the economy, and the political class is committed in making the country desirable for foreign investors as well as creating comforts for domestic ones.
A successful integration is occurring, although several challenges need to be considered in order to fasten this process. Among these issues are the reform of political thought to approach standards offered by western institutions, the objective evaluation of Public Administrationâ€™ role in offering a safe and stable government policy management pointing to the professionalism while depoliticizing different structures of public services, the implementation of property rights and effective economical and legal reforms against the corruption while restoring trust and confidence to the Albanian society.
