Democratic Governance and Rule of Law
What we do
Still a young democracy, Albanian institutions and people partner with UNDP to make democratic processes and institutions more responsive to the needs of ordinary citizens. UNDP helps strengthen electoral systems and planning processes, improve access to justice and public administration and develop a greater capacity to deliver services to those most in need.Our goal is to help develop state capacities that are accountable, transparent, inclusive and responsive.
Albania has made progress towards meeting the international standards with regard to the stability of institutions guaranteeing democracy, the rule of law, human rights and commitments to key political reforms. Albania is addressing very seriously the twelve key priorities identified in the European Commission’s Opinion through an Action Plan which is being implemented and monitoring their achievement and compliance with the EU criteria and Albania’s obligations. In follow up to the implementation of major UN conventions, UNDP helps the fight against corruption, gender based violence and discrimination, promotion and enforcement of human rights. more
