Abstract for: The dynamics of the backlog in the Administrative Court of Appeal of Tirana, Albania

This paper focuses on the backlog of cases in the Administrative Court of Appeal of Tirana, Albania. The administrative Court, being one of its kind, since it was established (end of 2013), has been suffering from a high backlog. To represent the behavior over time of this problem the SD approach was used. A model was developed which replicates the behavior over time of the backlog from the first quarter of 2014 to the third quarter of 2016 and makes forecasts until the end of 2021. The developed structure replicates the behaviour over time and the problem continues to exist in the future if the conditions remain the same. To address the problem, a short-term policy and a long-term policy were applied. This paper aims to provide details on the methodology used to analyse the dynamic problem.
