This thesis presents a political and historical analysis of the evolution of American-Albanian relations since their initiation up to the present; The study focuses on the highlights of these relations such as the role of the United States (U.S.) in the preservation of Albania's territorial sovereignty right after the First World War, the decisive support of the United States for the democratization processes in Albania, as well as the dynamics of American-Albanian relations during the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) intervention in Kosova (Serbian language, Kosovo). This study will analyze the importance and the role of Albania in the present strategy of the United States in the Balkans, as well as the main factors that will determine the future course of the relations between the two countries; This research constitutes the first concise study dedicated exclusively to Albanian-American relations, especially for the period after the fall of communism.
