The Albanian-American Community in the United States

Abstract

This essay offers some insights into the sociohistory of the Albanians in America, their location, community life and ethnic organizations, with a particular stress on the changes brought by the opening of Albania's borders after 1990, and the crisis in Kosovo that culminated at the time of the NATO air strikes in March-June 1999. Both events paved the way for accelerating Albanian emigration to America and provoked major identity and political realignments within the Albanian community. The focus is on the ethnic processes prompted by the changing situation in the Balkans and on the emergence of Albanian-Americans as political actors in the American policy-process.
