ALBANIA - TEMPUS - Public Administration and Management in Shkoder
The project aims at strengthening and implementing the experiences that Formez
achieved with the ALBA project, which was finalized to realize the full
potential of local institutions in the Shkoder region in Albania and to create
a model that can be directly transferred to other similar cases.
The collaboration with personnel from the local administrations involved in the
previous project underlines the need to adapt civil servants expertise to the
competencies defined in the decentralization reforms already approved by the
Albanian government in 2000.
The aim of the European programme Tempus is to realize a cooperation in the
sector of higher training, but also to extend this action beyond the academic
community, involving sectors of public life and civil society. In this way, the
universities can become a strengthening instrument for both civil and
democratic societies, contributing updating and re-qualifying functionaries in
The Tempus programme PAMS which is divided into 3 years, aims to create a
specific curriculum in Public Administration within the faculty of Law at the
University of Shkoder. This is directed to future administrative local staff
with the realization of a training centre to support the decentralization
process that is taking place through training activities as well as the
re-qualification of P.A. personnel.
