The present publication is the first comprehensive policy document examining the Berlin Process. It is the result of a close collaboration amongst CDI / ShtetiWeb and its regional partner CSOs, Friedrich Ebert Foundation, Hanns Seidel Foundation, Konrad Adenauer Foundation, German and French Embassies in Tirana, EU Delegation to Albania, Prime Minister’s Office, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and prominent Members of the Albanian Parliament.
The first part of the publication includes a research paper on the Berlin Process, conducted by the research team of CDI / ShtetiWeb, and completed with an assessment of Albania’s position in this process as of November 2015. The research paper served as a working document for the conference “Albania in the Berlin Process: Fall 2015 Stocktaking and Recommendations”, held in Tirana on 5 November 2015. The contributions of the participants were redacted and are presented in written form in the second part of the publication.
