From Class to Identity: The Politics of Education Reforms in Former Yugoslavia

January 28, 2014

Jana Bacevic tells the story of education policies in former Yugoslavia and some of the states that grew out of its dissolution. It begins with education reforms that took place in the Socialist Federative Republic of Yugoslavia in the 1960s and ends with the post-conflict development initiatives in its successor states today. The author provides useful insights not only for scholars and students interested in education policies or the former Yugoslavia, but also to all those who think, act, write, argue, and care about what the purposes of education are or should be.
