Aim of the 2021 Profiles Enhancing Education Reviews (PEER) on non-state actors in education was to summarize the types of provision and regulations of non-state actors in education at the country level from the most recent available sources. Our PEER was focused primarily on Canton Sarajevo. PEER profiles aim to respond to two key questions:

(1) How are non-state actors engaged in education provision within a country’s education system?

(2) What laws, acts, strategies and policies exist which govern and regulate non-state actors engagement in education provision? PEER is structured in three parts: (1) Terminology: Explains if and how the country’s main education law describes and/or defines the actors beyond government, such as private actors or non-state actors, at all education levels. (2) Typology of education provision: Describes the most prevalent types of non-state actor engagement in formal, basic education. (3) Regulations of non-state education provision: Documents the most recent education legislation, policies or strategies of non-state education provision and identifies major changes in regulations at all education levels. Profile is focused on all education levels from early childhood care and education (ECCE) to higher education for the sections 1 and 3. Section 2 is focused on core education services in basic and compulsory education (primary and secondary education).
