Prosperity and stability in Albania and in the Western Balkans can be achieved only by a joint focus on economic and social questions within the framework of a new policy approach based on social cohesion. A new social and economic model needs to be implemented in Albania. Cooperation and Development Institute believes that this social model should promote progressive taxation and social protection programmes designed to reduce income and wealth inequalities. Fiscal transparency and open governance are the first steps towards building institutions that enable citizen participation in decision-making. Furthermore, Education system reform is a necessary condition for productivity growth and shifting towards an added value economy. A proper education reform process must introduce an integrated education system based on Western European models.
The projects and initiatives implemented in this programme area aim to develop policy recommendations for achieving a positive social and economic change.
