Amira El Houderi AFPAmira El-Houderi is currently working with an independent non-governmental organisation called Lawyers for Justice in Libya on an exciting project called Destoori (“My Constitution” in Arabic) that aims to educate Libyan citizens on the constitution making process. This is to gather public opinion, and to create a connection and sense of ownership between the Libyan people and their constitution. 'Our aim is to collect statements from the citizens and incorporate them into our recommendations for the appointed Constitutional Drafting Committee. We hope that these recommendations will provide the Constitutional Drafting Committee with guidance and insight into citizens’ needs and concerns in order to incorporate and elevate the weight of public opinion. Our Destoori team are travelling to many Libyan cities and towns at the moment.'

Albanians as Peacemakers

Distinguished former Presidents, Distinguished Guests, Ambassadors for Peace, Ladies and Gentlemen, Dear Friends!

Through this European Leadership Conference, God and Humanity are calling on Albanians to consider how they can take greater responsibility to realize lasting peace in the Balkans.

They will surely need to draw upon all that is righteous in their history and culture, and to add the capacity to go beyond concern for their own families and nation to a wider regional and global concern and a willingness to sacrifice for surrounding nations and make peace with their enemies.

When visiting Albania several years ago I was moved when hearing Albanian Ambassadors for Peace speak of the very painful period in recent history when refugees from Kosovo poured over your mountainous borders. I also learnt about ‘Besa’, the Albanian traditional morality which requires you to maintain your honour by offering sanctuary to the stranger at your door. This good heart and righteous tradition called Albanian families to share their homes and food with their traumatized brothers and sisters from Kosovo.
