Being completely vulnerable to changes and pressures that the international community offered to them, this society has lost the selection ability. The purpose of this paper is to observe both the negative and the positive impacts of globalization on Albania. Furthermore, it attempts to suggest some recommendations among which are to assist in developing democratization process and improving the quality of life.
