EDUCATION OF NATIONAL MINORITIES IN BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA: A CASE OF ROMA PEOPLE
This paper gives an insight into the position of the Roma national minority in Bosnia and Herzegovina in the field of education. First, it draws on the Spajić-Vrkaš’s various historical stages through which the attitude towards culturally different and differences went as well as the relevant typology of the intercultural education created by the same author. It is followed by an account of the educational documents in Bosnia and Herzegovina that contain certain values and principles of cultural pluralism after which the situation of the Roma children and youth education in Bosnia and Herzegovina is discussed on the basis of the relevant education reports and research. Finally, the paper argues for upgrading the education of the national minorities in Bosnia and Herzegovina and giving more attention to the promotion of cultural pluralism through education in a culturally complex society such as Bosnia and Herzegovina.
