Conference: lbania in the next ten years - envisioning the future, Tirana, 29-30 March 2012‏

Albania has just entered its 100th year of existence as an independent state, since the declaration of Independence from the Ottoman Empire in November of 1912. The century of existence of Albania has had a rich and diverse history.

The next ten years will be crucially important to Albania’s future and its prospects to establish democratic governance and to consolidate a functioning state. They will be critical to the country’s capacity to build a developed capitalist economy based on free competition. Such a development process is in essence Albania’s Europeanization project.

On the occasion of the 100th year of existence of the independent Albanian state, the Albanian Institute for International Studies, the Albanian Media Institute and the Friedrich Ebert Foundation Albania will organize an international symposium:
‘Albania in the next ten years – envisioning the future’

The event will take place in Tirana on the 29th and 30th of March, 2012. It will gather scholars and researchers of different fields of expertise.

The organizers would like to seek your contributions in the area of your interest/expertise.
