Public consultations

It is our pleasure to announce that the Delegation of the European Union is preparing the Annual Report 2021 on Albania. As in previous editions, we welcome input from civil society organisations to obtain your views on the topics covered in the report.

The structure of the Albania 2021 Annual Report will be the same as the 2020 Report. For each of the criteria – political, economic criteria and European standards (chapters) – an evaluation will be made of Albania's progress since June 2020. Progress will be measured in terms of concrete decisions taken, adopted legislation and degree of implementation.

Given civil society organisations' key role in Albania's European integration process, the Delegation would highly value your insights. Therefore, we would like to invite you to provide your input through written contributions to contribute to our analysis and in-depth assessment.

We would be grateful if you could send your written contributions by 16 April 2021 at the following e-mail address: with the subject: Albania 2021 Report – (Name of your organisation) contribution.

In addition, the EU Delegation will hold online public consultations on 12-13 April 2021. The programme is as follows:
