King’s Students, Staff, and Faculty Discuss Political, Economic and Spiritual Ideas with Albanians
New York, May 27, 2008—On May 12, 25 students, faculty, and staff from The King’s College took off for Albania to engage Albanians in a dialogue about political, economic and spiritual issues that are shaping their country.
For fifty years, Albania was isolated under the world’s most severe form of Communism. The Communist walls came down in 1991, but the country is still undergoing a turbulent transition to a parliamentary democracy.
Because Albania is still struggling to embrace democratic governance, opportunities abound to help shape the nation’s fledgling institutions, to engage in meaningful conversations about spiritual matters, and to reach out to people still trying to grasp the true meaning of freedom.
While in Albania, King’s students have been debating with Albanian college students, giving presentations regarding free market principles, and forging valuable relationships.
Now two weeks into the trip, team members are amazed at their experiences. They have taken excursions to Macedonia, gotten lost with some of the locals, and made surprising friendships. Some have even appeared on Albanian television.
The trip concludes on June 1.
The King’s College is Christian liberal arts located in the Empire State Building in New York City.
