Etno-političke nesuglasice unutar Agencije za visoko obrazovanje BiH su blokirale proces akreditacije visokoškolskih ustanova u BiH. Institucionalna akreditacija za šest bh. univerziteta je istekla prošle godine, te iako su univerziteti aplicirali za reakreditaciju, ona nikad nije provedena. Ukoliko do 31. marta ove godine ne dođe do rješenja ove krize, bh. univerziteti bi mogli trpiti posljedice na međunarodnom nivou jer je institucionalna akreditacija preduslov za učešće u internacionalnim akademskim programima kakav je Erasmus+. Istovremeno, međunarodni kredibilitet diploma sa neakreditovanih bh. univerziteta bi također postao upitan i izvan granica BiH. Ovom peticijom od Agencije za visoko obrazovanje BiH zahtijevamo da što prije i u skladu sa Okvirnim zakonom o visokom obrazovanju u BiH nastavi proces akreditacije visokoškolskih ustanova i spriječi posljedice koje prijete bh. akademskoj zajednici. Osim toga, peticijom tražimo da Agencija za visoko obrazovanje u BiH žurno usvoji preporuke Europske asocijacije za osiguranje kvaliteta u visokom obrazovanju (ENQA) iz 2017. godine. Usvajanje preporuka je preduslov za punupravno članstvo Agencije u ENQA-i i svojevrsna garancija usaglašenosti sa evropskim kriterijima akreditovanja visokoobrazovnih ustanova.

Due to ethnic and political disputes within the Agency for Development of Higher Education and Quality Assurance, the university accreditation process in Bosnia and Herzegovina is at a stalemate. Last September, the institutional accreditation for six Bosnian universities expired. Despite university efforts to reapply for accreditation, the process never actually took place. In the event that the crisis remains unresolved by the end of March, Bosnian universities may face serious consequences on an international level, including being deprived of international academic programs such as Erasmus+. At the same time, the international credibility of diplomas obtained at universities with expired accreditations may become questionable abroad and potentially deemed worthless. With this petition, we demand that the Agency continue the re-accreditation process respecting the Framework Law on Higher Education as soon as possible to prevent these consequences from affecting the Bosnian academic community. Additionally, we encourage the Agency to implement the recommendations from 2017 given by the European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ENQA). An adoption of these recommendations will pave the road for the Agency to become a full member of the ENQA and serve as a guarantee of compliance with the European criteria for accrediting higher education institutions.
