Agency for Treatment of Property in Albania capacitated to implement new legislation

In the framework of the EU and Council of Europe continuous assistance to relevant public authorities in Albania to further align the legislation and practice in the field of property rights with the European Court of Human Rights standards, a two-day workshop was organised in Korça with the staff of the Agency for Treatment of Property.

Following the enactment of new legal changes in May 2023, the Agency has conducted a comprehensive assessment of the steps required to comply with its legal obligations within December 2024. The purpose of the workshop was to support the capacities of the ATP’s staff on concrete measures to comprehensively address the outstanding claims for property return and compensation in view of the new legal requirements and contextual challenges.

Participants enhanced their knowledge and skills in utilising planning tools integrating SMART goals within the legal timelines, improved resource allocation and management as well monitoring progress and reporting.

This activity was organised within the frame of the joint European Union/Council of Europe action "Improving the protection of the right to property and facilitating the execution of ECtHR judgments in Albania" under the joint programme "Horizontal Facility for the Western Balkans and Türkiye".
