The conclusions of the international conference held in Sarajevo March 11-12, 2009, organised by Save the Children and the Norwegian government, and hosted by the President of Bosnia-Herzegovina. This major international conference ‘Where Peace Begins: The Pivotal Role of Education for Lasting Peace’ , took place against the backdrop of Bosnia-Herzegovina’s fragmented, segregated and highly politicised education system, criticised as reinforcing the differences between the ethnicities involved in the 1992-1995 conflict. The conference released a specific set of recommendations and follow-on activities that will ensure education is prioritised in ongoing and future peace processes.
