This report examines the ways in which the failure to adequately protect the human rights of orphans in Albania has tended to exacerbate their marginalization as they grow up. It contrasts their right to housing under international law and Albanian law with the deplorable conditions in which they may find themselves living as adults, and shows how the denial of this right has an impact on their access to other rights, driving them deeper into poverty and social exclusion.
