The Minister stated for Dnevnik + that the Government of the Republic of Srpska on the 17th of July 2019 considered the situation in higher education and concluded that the current situation is not satisfactory and requires necessary changes. "It has been 25 years since the Dayton Peace Agreement was signed, and we have now matured, as a society, for a fundamental transformation of the education system. We must reform the entire higher education system and make fundamental changes, first and foremost through the normative regulation of this area in a completely different and new way to take over all the necessary operational activities that will primarily lead to the merger of the economy and the academic community, that is, the economy, industry and scientific and research community within the academic community”, the minister said.
The entire reform process has been conceptualized and will last until 2035. From 2035, a stable, developed higher education system is expected to be fully operational for both, the global economy and the economy of Republic of Srpska. The first improvements will be seen during 2019 when the new Law on Higher Education is to be discussed.
