With the financial assistance of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, a project promoting human rights and democracy education was established in Albania in 2001.

The first phase of the project “Intercultural and Human Rights Education in Albania (2001-2003)” contributed to establishing a solid basis for the introduction of human rights education in the country. The ongoing second phase “Promoting Quality Education for All: Human Rights and Democracy Education in Albania (2005-on-going)” aims at further promoting a climate of respect for human rights and the practice of democracy in all educational establishments.
