The Norwegian Helsinki Committee has monitored and reported on the situation in Albania since 1990. We cooperate with Albanian organizations to conduct projects that promote human rights, participate in the local elections observation and support our sister committee in Tirana.
Norwegian Institute of International Affairs (NUPI) and the Norwegian Helsinki Committee have the great pleasure of inviting you to a seminar on Albania - Domestic and International Challenges.
- The Norwegian Helsinki Committee deeply regrets that Albania has taken a step backwards at a time when fair elections that could enjoy the confidence of all Albanians were needed”, said Ole B Lilleås, advisor with the Norwegian Helsinki Committee, who observed the 8 May 2011 local elections in cooperation with the Albanian Helsinki Committee for Human Rights. The AHC recently concluded that the elections did not meet international standards in a thorough report based on extensive observation throughout the country.
The Norwegian Helsinki Committee calls for the investigation of alleged crimes relating to the 21 January 2011 demonstrations in Albania, to respect the independence of the country’s General Prosecutor and for steps to be taken to ensure transparency and real and perceived fairness of the 8 May local elections.
