Albania Action Plan Review 2020-2022 – For Public Comment
In 2021, the Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) published the Action Plan Review for Albania’s fifth action plan. The report provides a technical review of the action plan’s characteristics and the strengths and challenges the IRM identifies to inform a stronger implementation process.
In Albania, the IRM’s findings are summarized below:
Albania’s fifth action plan aligns closely with pre-existing government strategies and priorities toward EU accession, including commitments to prevent corruption in public institutions, introduce beneficial ownership transparency, and improve access to justice. However, the government continued to act contrary to the OGP process as it developed the action plan without a multistakeholder forum. A dedicated multistakeholder forum should be established, without delay, to monitor implementation of the current plan and develop future action plans that also consider citizen and civil society priorities.
The report is available in English and Albanian. The public comment period closed 21 July 2021.
