Albania has made tremendous progress in the last twenty years and is moving smartly towards its European home. AIIS is both a cause and a consequence. Its sharp analytical focus on the world beyond Tirana has helped what was once one of the most isolated countries on earth, become an active contributor to the international order. These have been marvelously productive years for both Albania and its leading institute!

The Albanian Institute for International Studies, through its many conferences and publications, has become the leading organization of its kind in Albania and an important contributor to the discussion of a broad range of issues in the Balkans in general. It has provided a forum for in-country specialists and established important contacts with analysts and policymakers throughout the Balkans and the Western world. AIIS has made an important contribution to regional and general understanding of issues facing the Balkans.

AIIS is at the center of Albania ’s small group of independent think tanks. The Institute’s extensive speaker program and publishing projects have been central to building a base of qualified, non-governmental experts in defense policy, security affairs, and political analysis.

The Albanian institute of International Studies is one of the most professional, brilliant and active think tanks of the Balkans. In these years AIIS staff made a great work in contributing to promote regional cooperation and understanding among scholars and academician who have different views over the transition of the Balkans from post-communism and ethnic conflicts towards liberal democracy and the European commonwealth. Our institute has cooperated both in Italy and in Albania in organizing successful scientific and institutional events with AIIS.

A decade to date, since its foundation, the Albanian Institute for International Studies (AIIS), represents one of the most crucial actors of the Albanian civil society - it is both an irreplaceable institution, imperative to the study of international affairs, as well as a center of reputable alternatives in this field.

I feel honoured to congratulate the Albanian Institute for International Studies to its 10th anniversary! It is difficult to realize that this institution exists now only for 10 years because its impact on Albanian politics and in particular its reputation abroad gives one the feeling that this must be an old institution with long tradition!

A debate on international relations is crucial, especially for a formerly closed society as was Albania . AIIS, as part of a newly formed and dynamic civil society sector, ought to be considered as a necessary tool for a debate of the newly democratic Albania 's position in European and international relations. The ten years of existence of AIIS demonstrates as well the transformation of Albania in understanding the world.

The Institute for International Studies certainly deserves the warmest applauds for its excellent and unparalleled contribution that has provided in the review, debate, and promotion of contemporary issues in international affairs. Through AIIS, Albania has formulated a professional voice, in Balkan and European academic environment. AIIS is, without a doubt, the most prestigious Albanian centre for the study of European issues.

AIIS constitutes the most well known think-tank in the country, acting in the foreign policy and security field. The institution’s contributions are many, but I would emphasize its role in augmenting a vibrant debate and critical thinking; in inviting a group of foreign research experts to engage in Albanian and Balkan issues; in implementing a number of surveys and studies aimed at the public at large and other institutions.
