Italy for anti-corruption in Albania

The initiative Support to the Albanian School of Magistrates in the framework of constitutional reform, managed by the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation in Tirana, in collaboration with the Italian Superior Council of Judiciary (CSM), is a priority of the Italy-Albania Cooperation.

The Italian Anti-corruption Agency (ANAC) conducted a mission in Tirana in March 2021. It outlined the training needs of the newly established Albanian network of anti-corruption coordinators in order to develop the training plan that will be carried out in presence and on the web.

The ANAC training plan is the Italian response to a specific request that the Minister of Justice, Etilda Gjonaj, had made on the occasion of the visit to Tirana of the Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Luigi Di Maio last November 20th. 17 new anti-corruption Albanian officers, hired by the Ministry of Albanian justice and inserted in the main government agencies that provide services to citizens, will be trained by the Italian magistrates.

There are the four main fields of the new training courses.

  1. The management of the whisteblowers phenomenon.
  2. The legislative framework for the national anti-corruption plan.
  3. The legislative framework for the prevention of corruption.
  4. The issue of transparency and its evolution in the internet era.

The Italian Agency for Development Cooperation intends to keep sustaining the change in progress and expand the present and future collaboration of Italian Institutions, bilaterally and in the context of European projects. In this perspective, CSM and ANAC have a well-known story of collaboration and achievements.
