Academy of Political Studies is conducting a survey related to an assessment study on training needs of vulnerable voter groups in four regions of Albania (Tirana, Shkodra, Fier and Gjirokastra).  The study is being conducted in cooperation with the Central Election Commission and the OSCE Presence in Tirana thanks to the contribution from the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation. Over 1,200 interviews with representatives of groups such as local elected (mayors and municipal councilors), local observers, women, youth, minorities and people with disabilities will be cared out. The information gathered through interviews will be analyzed in a specific study and will serve to build the strategy of information and education on elections in our country.

The commitment and the required frank and candid answers were ensured from the local actors thanks to the engagement of alumni involved in the project and the prominent reputation of the Academy. The findings of this study will be presented in the upcoming weeks.
