This paper discusses results of the 2005 Albanian Election Study.

The 2005 Albanian Election Study (AES) was organized in collaboration with the Comparative Study of Electoral Systems (CSES) of the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, USA. CSES is a cross-national collaborative program among election studies in over fifty countries supported by the National Science Foundation of the United States. ALPSA is an Albanian professional organization. The AES survey fieldwork took place immediately after the last Albanian parliamentary election from July 4-20, 2005.

The 2005 Albanian Election Study focused on three general themes: the impact of political institutions on citizens' political cognition and behavior (functioning of the parliament, the government, and the presidency; the electoral rules; and political parties); the nature of political, cultural, ethnic and social cleavages; ideological alignments in Albania; and the evaluation of democratic institutions and processes.

Keywords: Albania, parliamentary election, election study
