“The first national inter-ethnic and inter-religious volunteer association in Bosnia Herzegovina. An initiative of history professionals”
The aim of this initiative was to stop a history education that resulted in creating generations hating each other. A common textbook for the history of Yugoslavia from 1945 till 1990 was produced. Moreover, a national inter-ethnic and inter-religious volunteer organisation for history education was established in Bosnia. Unfortunately the political will to make a change is still lacking. Furthermore, it is very hard for volunteer civil society organisations to mainstream their work without political support. However, this experience shows us how “lifelong learning can offer a great opportunity to overcome such political nationalistic obstacles”, reaching and involving further audiences.
