About GATED

GATED: Segregated education in post-conflict Bosnia and the possibilities of future conflicts in Europe is a project funded by Horizon 2020 (EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation) under Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions.

The specific aim of the project is to investigate if segregated education in post-conflict societies causes the radicalisation of youth and increases the possibilities of future conflicts. GATED project presents an interdisciplinary investigation of segregated education in Bosnia with particular focus on the phenomenon of 'two schools under one roof' (TSUOR) that currently operates in the country. TSUOR describes schools in Bosnia that are organised around the the principle of ethnic segregation. Children from different ethnic groups, namely Bosnian Muslims, Croats and Serbs, attend classes in the same building but are physically separated into different classrooms and are taught different curricula by teachers from their own ethnic and religious group. TSUOR is a practice of separate education and a policy of segregation which was introduced to Bosnia two decades ago via the Dayton Peace Agreement that ended the conflict in Bosnia. 2015 marked twenty years since the signing of the Dayton Agreement and GATED projects investigates the legacy of Dayton Agreement in the field of education.
