Since 2017, Albania has been going through a substantial reform of the judiciary system. The improvement of judiciary quality and efficiency is one of the main pillars of Albania’s path to European integration. In July 2022, the negotiation process for Albania's membership to the European Union was officially launched.


Regional Component

In addition to projects in the particular countries, CSSP aims to strengthen the rule of law and access to justice through supporting the cooperation among mediation and justice systems and the use of mediation as an extrajudicial dispute resolution tool at regional level.
