From Discrimination to Inclusion and Equality in Education in BiH

30 May 2017 — unknown

Valery Perry spoke at the conference, “From Discrimination to Inclusion and Equality in Education in BiH,” held on May 30, 2017 in Sarajevo. The conference, convened by Analitika, reviewed issues and challenges related to inclusion in education in the country, ranging from special needs education to the ethno-national and political divisions that continue to create an environment in which children largely study in schools that tailor to the dominant majority group in that area. Perry spoke about the current status of educational good practice from Brcko District, noting that while this case has provided a model for a more integrated education system, this example is itself at risk as education has become increasingly politicized.
