Religion and Education in Bosnia: Integration Not Segregation
European Journal for Education Law and Policy
In light of the damage that Bosnia’s schools suffered because of the war, and the divisiveness that remains due to religious (and ethnic) differences, this article examines the role of religion in public education. Section II reviews the history and status of education in Bosnia before, during, and after the war. Section III briefly considers the status of religious freedom in Bosnia. Section IV examines the nexus between religion and education in Bosnia, especially as they interplay in the curriculum with the related concepts of ethnic segregation and lack of a national curriculum. In conclusion, Section V offers seven recommendations for educational leaders and policymakers who wish to integrate religion into public education in Bosnia.
