This article addresses some social policies in regard to protect some vulnerable groups in the context of respect for human rights and freedoms. Although Albania has ratified the European Social Charter to guarantee social rights, there are still shortcomings in the area of social policy and in guaranteeing of fundamental human rights.
Methodolody: The method is based on the analysis of national and international literature, which regulates issues of protection of human rights, social protection, as well as institutional data related to social inclusion policies. All data of research are gathered from national reports and documents of INSTAT, Ministry of Social Wellfare and Youth and Ministry of Education. Vulnerable groups in Albania face the challenges of a society that passes through a difficult phase of political, economic and social transition.
Results and Conclusion: The Albanian state should engage all sources in the direction of social protection systems. Policies should be dynamic and guarantee the instruments that these groups can continue moving forward and being not fully dependent on economic aid and social programs, which keeps these groups in the same vulnerability status and increases the likelihood of their return to their previous state of affairs.
