In 4 September 2004 correspondence with the Research Directorate, the Executive Director of the Albanian Foundation "Conflict Resolution and Reconciliation of Disputes" (AFCR), a Tirana-based non-governmental organization that offers mediation services to resolve blood feuds, stated that there are four associations in Albania that "deal with the issue of reconciliation." He was not aware of an organization by the name of the Republic of Albania Humanitarian Association of the National Reconciliation (AFCR 4 Sept. 2004).

Corroborating information could not be found among the sources consulted by the Research Directorate.

This Response was prepared after researching publicly accessible information currently available to the Research Directorate within time constraints. This Response is not, and does not purport to be, conclusive as to the merit of any particular claim for refugee protection.
