OMB no.7 Rethinking Gjirokastra
PROF. DR. BESNIK ALIAJ
Rector of POLIS University
Gjirokastra is one of the most beloved cities in Albania and beyond in the region. The city with extraordinary historical values, and with unique traditions and landscape, is rightly included in the UNESCO list. Gjirokastra has always been, and continues to be, among the main settlements that serve as a reference for the development of southern Albania, and the cross-border area of northwestern Greece. After the 90s the city has entered a demographic and economic recession that is typical for those inhabited centers that face the global phenomenon of "shrinking cities". Read more
