Civic engagement in Albania is low. The relationship between citizens and local authorities is still not based on accountability, transparency and participation. Corruption is pervasive while checks and balances are weak and under utilised.

To this end, the LëvizAlbania Project aims to enhance local democracy by activating drivers of change such as media, civil society and citizen groups. Civic engagement and demand for accountability develop through a bottom-up and genuine process. LëvizAlbania enables civil society actors - including marginalised citizens - to have a voice, to exercise control over and engage in dialogue with local authorities thereby increasing the latter’s responsiveness and accountability.


Albanian population benefits from an improved democracy at local level.
