ICGís latest Albania report, entitled Albania: State of the Nation,
examines recent political developments in Albania and traces the social,
political and economic after-effects of last yearís Kosovo crisis. In
particular, the report assesses the implications of Kosovo's
liberation from Belgrade's rule for the future of Albanian nationalism
and Albania's role as the motherland of ethnic Albanians throughout the

Looking at the evolving nature of pan-Albanian aspirations in the
Balkans, the report highlights a series of new initiatives for closer
inter-Albanian co-operation as well as the re-emergence of old
grievances - such as the property rights claim of the ethnic Albanian
Cham minority in northern Greece.

The report underscores Albania's alarming security situation and the
chronic inability of the countryís struggling state institutions to stem
the rising tide of violence and organised crime.  It concludes with a
call for greater regional co-operation and a series of targeted
technical assistance initiatives designed to help contain and, over
time, tackle corruption, blood feuds, the power of organised crime and
illegal trafficking in drugs and people.
