Gianfranco Martini scholarship 2017 will support research on local democracy in Albania
On the occasion of ALDA General Assembly 2017, hosted by the region Kujawsko-Pomorskie (Poland) in Toruń on 12 May, the winner of this year's scholarship Gianfranco Martini was announced.
Honorary President Gianfranco Martini was among the initiators of the concept of Local Democracy Agencies and became the first President of ALDA when the Association was founded in 1999. Every year in spring, ALDA launches a call for candidatures for a scholarship in his memory.
This year, the scholarship is awarded to Klodjan Sefaraj, from the University of Tirana, Albania, for his work on Local Democracy in Albania, titled “Albania stands at a crossroads regarding its local democracy”.
Soon, updates about his project will be disseminated via ALDA’s website and communication channels. We congratulate Mr. Sefaraj and look forward to reading the fruits of his work.
