Peasant Movement for Land in the Prefecture of Elbasan (Albania) in the Early 20s - 30s of XX Century
The paper aims to present an aspect of local history of Elbasan region or neighborhood, in the '20s-30s of the twentieth
century, peasant struggle for land, as one of the main directions of social conflict in this period, not only in the prefecture, but nationwide.
This war not only aimed at resolving the land ownership right, but simultaneously improving the economic status of peasants, through
easing the tax burden. To realize these goals in such a motion also included rural layers of Elbasan Prefecture, whose war took more the
character of an economic war, given the difficult situation that characterize this layer and poor rural schools, especially the remote areas
and state fiscal policy seriously. Through archival sources, in this article we try to analyze the reasons that prompted such a move, the
development of its format, the connection with labor movements and their consequences in this region and beyond.
