Foreign Policy Forum

The Foreign and Security Policy Forum (the Forum) aims to engage distinguished Albanian and international speakers in constructive debates in order to alert the public, political elites and business community to contemporary security and foreign policy challenges. We published and distributed the findings and recommendations that followed from these discussions, to the relevant communities in Albania and abroad. Launched as the Albanian Forum initiative in 1999, the Forum evolved into the Foreign and Security Forum in 2004 due to the enlarged scope of the themes under discussion. Since its founding, the Forum has benefited from the financial support of: Open Society Foundation for Albania (SOROS), the Delegation of the European Commission in Tirana, US Embassy in Tirana & Friedrich Ebert Foundation.
