Since the end of the war in the 1990s Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) has been considered a deeply ethnically divided society, where ethnicity determines almost all aspects of life: cultural, social, political, and economical. This chapter reflects on the experience of the Nansen Dialogue Center in Sarajevo (NDC Sarajevo) and its mission to promote interethnic dialogue and to create interethnic initiatives among ethnically divided communities in BiH. In particular, the roles of parents, teachers, students, principals, and politicians in the initiatives for integrated education are examined.
