The Project:
It is complied according to the strategic plan approved in the First Congress of the Reconciliation Missionaries, on February 26. 2001, and in the common declaration of the representatives of all the villages in North of Albania mustered, on June 14 2001, in Puka. In these popular meetings, mustered according to the tradition of taking decisions by the representatives of all villages, was decided: “Respectability of legal state’s authority and leaving the responsibility only to the guilty person to be penal persecuted by the state, setting free all the fastening families, public denunciation of weapons, drugs and women traffickers”. By applying this decisions are set free 60% of the families in the districts of Kukes, Has and Malesia e Madhe and 100% in the districts of Mirdita and Dibra. The Project, through this positive tradition, supports the protection of the human rights according to the United Nations Charter and the efforts of OSCE for the stability and integration of Albania in European Union. It is compiled in conformity with their standards and their requests and will be fulfilled in cooperation with state institutions, political parties, religious beliefs and all NGO-s that have signed the Declaration of Cooperation in Puka. All the reconciliation associations have embraced the ideas, the program and the strategy of the Committee of Nationwide Reconciliation. The project is compiled with the proposal of most of them and it was upheld by the political parties, which have signed the Cooperation Act with this Committee. The Committee of Nationwide Reconciliation has the task forces in every village, made up by three persons: a teacher, a representative of the local power and a mediator.

Conflictive and blood feud situation after 1990:
With he beginning of transition in Albania was spread the phenomenon of weapons, women and drugs traffic and also the killings for revenge and blood feud, not only in north of Albania where has existed the governing of canon, but even in south. By accomplishing self-judgment are taken the lives of thousands of Albanians, depriving the joy and happiness of the families, especially women and children, are forced to fast in order to escape murder. Before Puka's Meeting, on June 14 2001, more than 150000 houses had got guns (today about 100 000) and there were 2500 families in conflict (today 1376). Organized crime has under control 30 000 women and 4000 person under-aged that are exploited by the traffickers, there are 450 children that can't go to school as well as 1300 persons gone abroad to hide from the killer.

The main causes are:
The organized crime, the disorganization of society; political, economical and spiritual crises and also the non-function of the legal state. Only 7% of the killings are motivated by old feuds before year 1945, while the others came as a result of tragic events and new conflicts. This phenomenon was especially urged after the happenings of 1997, when the population took many guns. In this year was seen as necessary the creation of the Committee of Nationwide Reconciliation, which is composed by representatives of several missions, NGO-s and the most esteemed personalities of social, political and scientific life, that aims the creation of a common and long-term strategy for prevention of social conflicts, murders for revenge and blood feud and respectability of legal state’s authority.
The Committee is working under traditional collective responsibility, in community for abandonment of the old canonic norms, respectability of state’s authority, reconciliation and setting free the fastening families, public denunciation and isolation from society of weapons, drugs and women trafficker. The project will be fulfilled all over Albania. The support it has in people and reputation of Committee of Nationwide Reconciliation makes possible to reach this goal.
