Description

Albania's integration into the European Union, is one of the biggest challenges in these 25 years.

These criteria have political and economic character that predict: justice, freedom and security, guaranteeing democracy, the rule of law, respect for human rights and minorities. To meet these criteria, Albania shall cooperate with the European Union. If the European Integration Process will be classified in several stages, each stage has maximum and minimum length. In this paper main objective is to give a brief, descriptive framework of the challenges that Albania have to face in the process of European Integration together with the advantages of this process and secondly we will list the institutions involved together with their role in the process of Integration. According to theoretical analysis it will conclude that starting from the current phase and the cases of other countries that have undergone the process of European integration, Albania's EU membership can occur after 2-12 years period from 2017 to 2027.
