Central and Eastern European Legal Studies
The extensive transformation of social structures and public powers started in Central and Eastern Europe since the end of the 80's has urged the European Group of Public Law and the European Public Law Center (now European Public Law Organization), since their respective foundation, to envisage the introduction in the heart of the European Review of Public Law of a special series of studies entitled Central and Eastern European Legal Studies.

A structural change has been carried out with regard to this publication, which up to now had been a special edition of the European Review of Public Law.

With a view to reshaping this effort and to advancing even further its image and scientific input after the lapse of almost 15 years since the Central and Eastern European Legal Studies (CEELS) was launched, the Series has been reshaped first through the establishment of its own Board of Editors, composed by renown academics from countries of the Central and Eastern Europe as well as from Western European countries, all of them specialized in this area.

The aim is to give the opportunity to academics coming from CEE countries and also to academics from other countries specializing in this field, to come together and exchange views on public law issues of these countries.

This will be a publication appearing twice a year and in order to expand to a wide circle of readers articles will be accepted in English, French, Russian, German, Italian as well as in the native languages of authors coming from CEE countries (including the Turkish and Greek languages).

Volume II

CEELS Vol II cover small"Dimensions in Albanian Legal Studies / Aspects des Etudes Juridiques en Albanie"

The articles published in this volume of the Central and Eastern European Legal Studies were prepared by academics from the University of Tirana's Law Faculty who took part in the HERMES project, a three-year TEMPUS programme. The benefici¬ary institution was the University of Tirana's Law Faculty, whose aca¬demic law staff is responsible for the contributions to this legal study. The HERMES project dealt exclusively within the area of law and more spe¬cifi¬cally in introducing into the Law Faculty's legal curriculum a European dimension. The consortium was led by the European Public Law Center (now European Public Law Organization), together with the Université Montesquieu-Bordeaux IV and the Istituto Universitario Orientale di Napoli.

The five articles are representative of the crucial problems faced by the Albanian society at the moment from a legal perspective. Respectively, the articles deal with the evolution of the Albanian Constitution; competition law; the issue of freedom of thought and expression; property law rights and, fi¬nally, the fight against organised crime.

All of the articles together provide interesting insight into the legal di¬mensions in Albania. They represent also an example of how close or how far Albania is from the standards given by the European Union for mem¬bership. Membership in the European Union is after all a main objective of Albania.

Volume I

ceels Vol I small cover“Introduction to Competition and State Aid Law of the European Union / Introduction au droit européen en matière de concurrence et d’aides étatiques”

The articles presented in this edition are the direct result of a Phare pro­gramme entitled Training of Academics from CEEC in Competition Law and State Aid Policy whose aim was to increase the awareness of compe­tition policy with a wider public of economic operators. The rationale be­hind this particular Phare programme was the idea that academics from Central and Eastern European countries could be one of the catalysts for improving this awareness. The articles included herein are the works of nineteen Central and Eastern European academics who took part in an intensive training seminar devised and executed by the European Public Law Cen­ter (now European Public Law Organization), on EC competition policy and state aid, and are the result of compara­tive studies on the common competition rules and how they are reconciled with the laws on competition as perceived in Bulgaria, the Czech Repub­lic, Poland, Romania, and Slovakia.
