Ina K. Zhupa

Abstract


Every particular society besides affirmative universal values, or the affirmation of the above, retains its specification based on their own traditional values. Which ultimately also make it different from other societies, distinct from them, despite the growing trends of globalization. Social, political, economic changes in a society inevitably affect the change of values who believes and supports a society and their hierarchy when we have to select their useful in a situation. Along with these changes recast the way society action and that’s the reason that we study the values of the society. However pillars of traditional values remains as a point of reference in the judgment to make a pretty diverse society and its collective behavior. We try to identify the traditional values of Albanian society and to achieve this we have chosen to take in analysis the Canon of Lek Dukagjin and the Canon of Laberia. Respectively in the north and the south part of the country, they have been domestic laws of behavior, cultural codes that have run all judgments and actions of people. A content analysis of them will help us build a profile of Albanian value patterns. And finally to see if we find this traditional values, behaviors usable in Albanian society today.
