The multi-religiousness and multiple religious communities of Bosnian and Herzegovina society have always pointed to a coexistence that has developed naturally. In a way it still does. At the same time this is also what segregates the three main ethnic groups most, especially after the last war, 1992-95.
In this study I am focusing on religious education among pupils in primary and comprehensive schools in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The main intention of this study is to show the way in which religious education is organized and how the subject is communicated to the children. This is done by analysing and comparing religious education textbooks of the three main religions in the country, namely Islam, Catholicism and Orthodox Christianity, but also by looking at public debate around this subject.
This will hopefully provide answers to the question that I am asking in this study; what is the problem with religious education in Bosnia and Herzegovina?
