PERFORM Continues to Support Drafting of Bylaws of the Law on Higher Education

In the framework of the support to the Ministry of Education and Sport in drafting the by-laws of the Law on Higher Education and Scientific Research in Higher Education Institutions, PERFORM supported an expert retreat in Pogradec, Albania.


The retreat was held May 29-31 and the participants were gathered in three working groups: Organisation of Subordinate Agencies and Institutions, Financial Issues, and Academic Standards. The working groups were composed of civil servants from relevant departments of the Ministry of Education and Sport, heads of state agencies for higher education, and high-ranking officials of public and non-public universities.

Background

The new Law on Higher Education and Scientific Research in Higher Education Institutions in the Republic of Albania was passed by the Parliament in November 2015. The Law needs to be accompanied by 53 by-laws, the drafting of which is managed by the Ministry of Education and Sport.

To facilitate the work of the Ministry, PEFORM NCU Albania supported the organisation of two retreats for the working groups tasked to draft the said bylaws. The first workshop was held in March this year.
