Reforms of the Public Sector Management in Albania


  • Sonela Stillo
  • Shyqyri Llaci
  • Eleni Vangjeli


The problems treated and the often calumniated problems about public administration in Albania gave an impulse to our research. In inquiring through the comparative analysis of the tow public and private sector, we tried to certify the hypotheses that the public administration has enough problems, and that the reform in a certain point have positive indications, but there’s place for improvement. We could say that the paths leading to the integration of the large European family are, among others, the effective reforms in the public sector management, too.
