The right to read in Mongolia

(8 October 2105) To fulfill the promise of the right to read for blind, visually impaired and other print disabled people, EIFL is supporting ratification of the Marrakesh Treaty in partner countries, and its implementation into national copyright law.

In a project supported by the EIFL Copyright and Libraries Programme, the Mongolian Libraries Consortium (MLC) led a campaign for ratification of the treaty in Mongolia, in partnership with the Mongolian National Federation of the Blind (MNFB).

As a result, Mongolia became the 10th country to ratify the Marrakesh Treaty on 23 September 2015. Mongolia’s ratification marks the halfway point towards entry into force of the global copyright treaty, and a significant step forward in improving the lives of people in Mongolia with print disabilities.
