Abstract: Housing is a very important case as a common function of central and local government, as a
consequence of the increased requests of the citizens for housing and finding the best policies t o achieve the
best realization. Actually in Albania is approved the law no. 22/2018 “For social housing”, by the Assembly of
Albania, which is a very important act for the realization of social housing programs. The object of this law is
the definition of rules and administrative procedures for the ways of planning, insurance, administration and
the distribution of social programs of housi ng, with the purpose of creating opportunities for suitable and
affordable housing, relying on the paying capacity of families in need of housing and the assistance of
responsible state institutions. This law is defined as a very important act because in the housing programs a part
of them belongs to woman as victims of violence, as a further step towards meeting the standarts of the Concil
of Europe Convention “For preventing and fighting violence against woman and domestic violence”.

Introduction
Our society increasingly needs the design and implementation of Social Policies because our country,
but not only, is currently facing social problems. One of the social problems facing society today is
social housing. If we read about social housing, we will see that this service is provided to people in
need, so in this sense it is necessary to draft and implement social housing policies. The social housing
concepts originates from the human rights sanctioned in the Convention on Human Rights. Social
housing is seen by many scholars as a mission of general interest, from where it is guided by certain
social legislation. The provision of social housing includes the construction, development, allocation
and management of social housing leasing schemes, as well as the ownership of social housing.3
Going further and deeper in the study on social housing we will come to conclusion that this service is
provided by the government on behalf of the population benefiting from social assistance or individuals
that are part of the Social Policy scheme. While the municipalities of the cities are responsible for the
implementation of this plan. Social housing comes in the form of leasing schemes. Housing benefits are
also provided in order to help the low-income rent-paying families.4
