Laws on adult education in BiH are not harmonised. In Republika Srpska, regulations regarding adult education have been in force since the passing of the Act on Adult Education in 2008, which was amended in 2012. Aside from the Law and series of regulations of adult education in RS, a significant contribution was made by the founding of the Institute for Adult Education in RS in 2010. On the other hand, FBiH has only recently taken steps to pass the Adult Education Law of Unsko-Sanski Canton and work on the Adult Education Law of Sarajevo Canton, which is expected to be passed soon. Having in mind that education is a cantonal issue, each canton should pass these laws. A framework law on the level of FBiH would help in making the cantonal legislation similiar or identical, which eliminates the possibility of addressing the same issue in different ways, especially with regard to programs and institutions in this area of the educational sector.
