The fall of the authoritarian regime in Albania by early 90-s, opened a new chapter of developments for the country. The transition from ‘centrally planned’ economy towards ‘free market’ combined with the change towards pluralism and democracy were and still remain one of the greatest challenges of the country. The relatively weak state with limited capacities to govern the society towards democracy could not easily reform the planning system in order to be able to respond to local and societal changes, resulting in a total freedom and potential anarchy for the territorial development.
