The genesis of consumer right in Albania

Belinda Halilaj


The study of the consumer right in juridical sciences is an innovation for the Albanian legislation. By means of this paper we would like to explain the genesis of consumer right. In order to explain the genesis of consumer right, we have focused since its very first steps to the present protection of this right. In order to determine which were the first hints of the emergence of this right and how it developed, we have reviewed legal resources from all time periods during which the consumer has enjoyed a protection. From our study, we have concluded that the use of the word consumer is something new for the legislation of our country. Nowadays, several laws have been approved and state mechanisms have been established with the intent to maintain consumer protection at a high level. Their approval derived directly from the development of this right. In the last part of this paper, we also focus on the factors that influenced the emergence of this right. These factors have been crucial for the complete and accurate establishment of what we today call the rule of law. The establishment of the rule of law enabled the approval of laws on consumer protection, but also the generation of an environment where the consumer enjoys the same level of protection as any other consumer in the neighbouring states.
