About ICID: History - Mission - Objectives - Structure

“Institute of Collaboration for Integration and Development” (ICID ) was born as result of concrete initiatives and actions of grouped people with different political views,different levels of scientific education and professions, places of origin and religious beliefs. All together, young men and women, all in the first steps of a path they all aspired to walk along.

However, the movement spread from town to town, pursuing the historical values of cooperation, with the support of the political and governmental protagonists, personalities of science and arts, in national and local scale, the avalanche of initiatives involved high level political figures, mayors, prefects, religious leaders, leaders of political parties and personalities of the communities in all the administrative centers where these activities took place.

All together, under the same motto: collaboration towards a different reality, towards a better future for All.

Not long after, just a few years later, the, so to speak, impossible word “together”, changed into the principal motto of all alternatives, when facing the voters and in the political and governmental platform programs in national, regional and local levels.

All those men and women who initiated and supported the initiative for collaboration, give today their contribute in political freedom issues as well as all government and social instances of the country. They are leaders of the state, policy makers, law makers, central and local government members, responsible of the administration of the national and local institutions, organizations and entities. The Institute of Collaboration for Development and Integration was founded and constituted by the Tirana Court of Law, Albania. I.C.I.D. headquarters are in Tirana, but a national network has naturally come to be through I.C.I.D initiative in the past years.
