The Agency is pleased to welcome the Republic of Serbia as its newest member country!

The Republic of Serbia had been an Agency observer country since April 2017. On 1 January 2018, it became the Agency’s 31st member country. Membership of the Agency will help the Republic of Serbia to achieve its aims in the field of inclusive education, particularly by facilitating co-operation with other member countries, enabling access to data on good practice and analysis in different education systems and through technical support.

Serbia has been continuously working to increase accessibility and equity in education, to develop safe and stimulating physical and social environments and to ensure equal opportunities for all children, pupils, students and adults in achieving the right to quality education and additional support. The main objective is to enable each person to learn, improve and acquire skills for independent living and inclusion in society, by providing appropriate support and accessibility at all levels and respecting individual educational needs.

Through specific initiatives and activities and by constantly improving the legal framework, the Ministry of Education, Science and Technological Development of the Republic of Serbia aims to achieve the following specific goals of inclusive education:

  • develop the system of support for children and adolescents through efficient inter-sectoral co-operation;
  • improve competencies for quality (inclusive) education among employees of educational institutions;
  • create an inclusive environment for learning and development;
  • develop and implement mechanisms for monitoring and evaluating inclusive education.
