Corruption risks are high in Albania’s defence sector, despite an active focus on modernizing its defence and security apparatus and strengthening procurement legislation. The sector lacks transparency, especially in procurement and financial management. External oversight remains weak, with parliament failing to scrutinise government performance regularly; most defence procurement is single-sourced, and significant corruption risks exist in relation to military operations.
