BIRN Albania is a media non-governmental organization based in Tirana, which specializes in investigative reporting, publishing and media monitoring.

Launched in March 2014, BIRN Albania comes on the heels of the network’s editorial presence in Tirana, established in 2007.

BIRN Albania supports the development of high quality journalism and civil society and thereby contributes to the development of democracy by keeping public institutions and the government accountable to its citizens.

In line with this purpose, BIRN Albania will provide skills and knowledge-based training to individual journalists and media organizations via vocational and workshop-based methods; will publish high quality reports, investigations and analyses on crucial transitional political, economic and social themes.

The expertise of the BIRN Albania editorial staff in investigative reporting has been recognized locally, regionally and internationally.

Our core team of contributors and editors is widely respected, both by the local and international media, as a point of contact and reference on developments in Albania.
