Dhivër (Greek: Δίβρη, Greek pronunciation: [Ðivrˈi]) is an Albanian village and a former municipality in the Vlorë County, southern Albania. At the 2015 local government reform it became a subdivision of the municipality Finiq.[1] The population at the 2011 census was 1,396.[2] The municipal unit consists of the villages Dhivër, Rumanxë, Memoraq, Navaricë, Dermish, Leshnicë e Sipërme, Leshnicë e Poshtme, Janicat, Llupsat, Cerkovicë, Shëndre and Malcan.[3] A 1993 study by Leonidas Kallivretakis found that the population of the commune consisted of 91% ethnic Greek Christians and 9% Albanian Muslims, the latter all located in the village of Navaricë.[4][5]. However, the current demographics needs to be assessed in order to provide an up-to date demographics.
