Historical turns and the return of memory

16 March 2007

The European Institute of Tirana, in collaboration with the Albanian government and with the support of the Soros Foundation, have presented on March 16th:
‘Results from the monitoring of the National Action Plan implementation on the Migration, and of the National Strategy on the Migration’.
Under the conditions when each third of the Albanian citizens is migrating, facing the migration phenomenon is one of the biggest challenges for the Albanian state and society. During the year 2004 the Council of Ministers of the Republic of Albania has compiled and implemented a National Strategy for the Immigration, a document supported from the European Commission (Program CARDS 2001), through co-financing and technical assistance from IOM (International Organization of Migration). This strategic document tries to find long-term solutions to the multiple problems of the migration phenomenon, such as: combating illegal migration; immigration and Albanian development; improving the image of Albanian immigrants abroad; enhancing the consular and diplomatic Albanian services; defending the rights of Albanian immigrants etc.

The monitoring of the strategy implementation has been notified to the public during a press conference, where the Monitoring Report from the experts of the European Institute of Tirana was presented. The report was prepared in collaboration with representatives of the Ministries and other Institutions of the Albanian state.

During the conference it was declared that the National Strategy of Migration is not a static document, but rather a dynamic one, and needs continuous monitoring. It has been required that the Albanian government should state a clear position towards the future of the strategy implementation; as well to take measures for an ordered institutional functioning of the latter, together with the enhancement of human and financial capacities. Further collaboration with international organisms and institutions, as well as with the civil society, has to be boosted.

Among the statistical data the report offered we may include:

  • From 15 Ministries and state institutions involved in the strategy implementation and in the action plan, 8 of them were not aware for the existence of such strategic documents
  • From 63 measures to implement or rather to initiate during the year 2006:
    There have been only 16 measures implemented, i.e. 26% of the total.
    33 measures found no implementation, i.e. 53% of the total.
  • The volume of activities foreseen for the implementation of such measures:
    Only 33 activities have been implemented, i.e. 28% of the foreseen.
    76 activities were not implemented, i.e. 64% of the total.
