The overarching goals of the Academy are to highlight the current issues facing Bosnia-Herzegovina and its population living in diaspora, to counteract prevalent negative images of the country and to foster its economic, intellectual and cultural development. To this end, the Academy provides a platform where members lead and facilitate programs in areas of culture, arts, education, professional exchange, science, civic diplomacy, and others.

The program staff may be composed of members or any other individuals who have expertise and/or interest to actively participating in a particular program or project of the Academy, and who will help design, develop, manage, monitor and evaluate the particular program.
