Constitutional & Legal Foundations
In 1998 Albania adopted a new constitution. The Ministry of Education oversees education in Albania and facilitates international cooperation and exchanges in higher education.
The ministry's Higher Education Department reviews foreign credentials. Although Albanian educators and international advisors see a need for greater decentralization, the Ministry of Education retains a high degree of central authority. The Ministry of Education intends to bring Albanian educational standards in line with those of developed European nations.
