Update on UniZagreb & UniPecs Mentoring Association

April 24, 2013

From Amir Spahic; Faculty of Organization and Informatics (FOI) - University of Zagreb:

Update on both the work we do in FOI and an overview of the University.

It provides relevant information regarding our Mentoring Association with the Roma Department of the University of Pecs as they share similar background with Roma population in Hungary.

Lazlo Komlosi, Vice-Rector of the University of Pecs, represents the Hungarian institution in our Mentoring Association. He could not attend the conference in Tartu, Estonia for professional obligations but his visit to Croatia with a team of 4 other people from Pecs University helped us building on our Action Plan.

Similar background between UniZagreb and UniPecs:

  • Roma / Non-Roma children are learning together in schools
  • The language children are taught in is not their mother tongue

Teachers in Zagreb are learning how to work with Roma children - focus on social inclusion.


We're planning future visits to Hungary and Croatia.
