“Drawing from a rich body of sources, including survey data drawn from Vucaj’s field work, A Case Study of European Skill Formation in Albania, will serve as a crucial entry on the implications of European skill formation for education policy and practice in Albania. Vucaj provides a fresh look at Albania’s education sector, and in particular how education in a developing nation is mitigated by entrenched education (and cultural) traditions, transnational trends, and market needs. This highly recommended book should be read by policy-makers and educationalists alike".
Vucaj's book is an excellent contribution to the literature on skill formation in Albania. The depth and breadth of the author’s knowledge on European skill formation, Albanian education reforms and training system enriches every chapter of this book. This book is certainly to be much appreciated by policy-makers and academics in Albania, but also in other post-communist Eastern European countries.
