The series “Overview of Higher Education and Research Systems in the Western Balkans” includes seven reports on the higher education and research systems in the region – Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo*, FYR Macedonia, Montenegro, and Serbia. Each of the reports represents a comprehensive overview of the higher education and research systems in the region, covering topics such as policy, governance arrangements, funding, institutional landscape, and quality, while focusing on the major reforms and trends in the recent years.
The structure of the reports is built around the questionnaire produced by the project team, since one of the goals was, among other things, to secure a comparative perspective in writing the reports. With this series of reports, the project seeks to complement existing knowledge on the dynamics of higher education and research systems in the Western Balkans countries and by doing so contribute to the ongoing policy debates in the region. At the same time, the series aims to introduce these systems to the wider international audience.
