Ladies and gentlemen, I am pleased to be here today to launch the Albanian Law Journal. It is a novelty in the country. The journal is a new independent media channel and this bi-monthly online magazine will be freely available for the public. It focuses on four main areas: new legislation, human rights, court cases and developments in EU law. The Netherlands is happy to support this journal through our MATRA Rule of Law Programme. Because the Albanian Law Journal pays special attention to court case analysis, it will hopefully prove a useful tool for legal professionals and might give a contribution to strengthening the consistency of the decision-making of Albanian courts.
