The District of Has (Albanian: Rrethi i Hasit) is one of the thirty-six districts of Albania and one of the smallest. It has a population of 17,419[1] (2010 estimate), and an area of 393 km2 (152 sq mi). It is in the north-east of the country, part of Kukës County, and its capital and only municipality is Krumë.[2] The district consists of the following communes:

Has District, besides the town of Krumë, comprises a number of villages which are well known for their help in 1999 in the Kosovo War against the Serbian Army, for the unprecedented hospitality given to the thousands of refugees from Kosovo (there were about 78,000 refugees staying in the homes of Has inhabitants, or more than threefold the population of the Has District at that time). Hasi is located in the border of Albania and Kosovo[a]. The ethnographic region of Has is much wider than the District of Has, because about half of this region is located in the territory of Kosovo, from the Albania-Kosovo border to the gates of the cities of Prizren and Gjakova.Hasi was the trade center of north Albania.

Year-by-year the population of Has has been falling dramatically. European studies show that the decline in the Has population is falling due to the lack of economy so there is a huge number of people from this area migrating to countries like the United Kingdom and the United States but mostly to Tirana, the capital of Albania.

a. ^ Kosovo is the subject of a territorial dispute between the Republic of Kosovo and the Republic of Serbia. The Republic of Kosovo unilaterally declared independence on 17 February 2008, but Serbia continues to claim it as part of its own sovereign territory. The two governments began to normalise relations in 2013, as part of the Brussels Agreement. Kosovo has been recognised as an independent state by 108 out of 193 United Nations member states.
