Colloquium Regensburg

Nathalie Clayer (Paris): Circulation, adaptation and rejection of models: the adoption of the Civil code in interwar Albania

Adopting new codes - especially a civil code - seemed essential in Southeast Europe to achieve the desired objective of "civilization". In the Albanian case, this process which took place in the 1920s implied complex mechanisms of transfers between Albania, on the one hand, and Turkey and countries of Western Europe, on the other hand. The heuristic interest of this example is that we can observe not only processes of circulation and adaptation, but also of rejection. Indeed after a project of transfer of the Civil Code recently adopted in Turkey, the Turkish (or Turkish-Swiss model) was rejected. However, in the legitimation and mystification phase of the new code, we can observe another positioning to the "Turkish model". 

Given these multiple turns, this presentation makes the case for taking into account more complex space-time dynamics in the transformation of Southeastern societies.

Why and how did its life cycle – the emergence, development, and further decay – change over time, and which ways might it evolve in the foreseeable future? This lecture seeks answers to these questions.
