Education in the Serbian Language in Kosovo

Education in the Serbian Language in Kosovo

Education represents a fundamental pillar of Kosovo’s legal framework for the protection and promotion of the rights of communities including the right to receive public education in their own language. At current, there are two parallel education systems operating in Kosovo. One of them is run by the Government of Kosovo, more specifically the Ministry of Education, Science and Technologies (MEST), which provides education in Albanian, Turkish and Bosnian languages. The other is run by the Republic of Serbia and its Ministry of Education, Science and Technological Development and provides education in the Serbian language. These two education systems in Kosovo do not recognize each other and there is no convergence between the systems at any level: they have been coexisting separately since 1999. This study’s remit does not include the legal status of the parallel Serbian education system in Kosovo

There is a remarkable lack of knowledge on the Serbian education system in Kosovo. No study thus far has mapped the exact outreach of Serbian-language schools in Kosovo or the conditions under which such schools operate. In light of this, ECMI Kosovo’s mission is to outline the factual situation regarding the current conditions of the Serbian education in Kosovo, and to map and assess its quality, challenges and shortcoming through measurable indicators inspired by EU educational standards. The goal is to address necessities by means of a detailed policy for the advancement of the education provided in the Serbian language in Kosovo
