Consolidating criminal justice system
The project continues the work of the three previous projects, in which the IRZ was involved as a junior partner in Phases I and II.The aim of the project, which is to finish at the end of February 2018, is to support the current judicial reform and its implementation in Albania.Since the late 1960s, state and federal law enforcement policy has become increasingly focused on stamping out drug use, though recent trends have seen laws relax for one drug in particular.(1, 2, 3)1968Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs is founded.1969 A study links crime and heroin addiction, finding that 44% of those entering the jail system in Washington, D. have used heroin.1970The National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) is founded by Keith Stroup and begins lobbying for decriminalization of marijuana.1970 The White House provides funds to expand a methadone program in Washington, D. that aims to decrease heroin addiction; one year after the program begins, burglaries in Washington drop by 41%.The new Constitution paved the way for a profound and comprehensive judicial reform, initiating a restructuring of the whole court and judicial system.The constitutional amendments largely relate to the Constitutional Court, the courts and the Public Prosecutor’s Office.That means drugs represent a huge focus for those who participate in the criminal justice system.Let’s explore the impact and the recent history of American justice when it comes to the drug war.
As in all EU projects, the work on site is accompanied by short-term experts.In June 2014, the EU granted Albania candidate status in recognition of reforms that had been initiated.In view of the accession, the EU is calling for a reform of the judiciary, among others, which the IRZ has contributed to considerably as part of the EURALIUS IV project since the autumn of 2014.Contact us if you experience any difficulty logging in.
