Human knowledge as a global public good

On Wednesday 11 March 2015, the UN Special Rapporteur in the field of Cultural Rights will present a thematic report to the 28^th session of the Human Rights Council in Geneva regarding copyright policy in the context of cultural rights.

The international library and archive community welcomes the report that examines copyright from a critical but often neglected perspective: the human dimension.

This report emphasises human knowledge as a global public good and recommends that States should guard against promoting the privatization of knowledge to an extent that deprives individuals of opportunities to take part in cultural life and enjoy the fruits of scientific progress.

In cooperation with key strategic partners, IFLA has crafted a statement of support for the report—now signed by 10+ organisations from the international library and archive community.
