Event Details

With the support of the USAID under the Global Book Alliance, the ADEA ICQN-TL BLM section, in collaboration with the African Union’s (AU) Education Division, is organising a high-level book industry stakeholders’ seminar to help build a strong and inclusive framework for National Book and Reading Policies in Africa.

The Africa Union Commission has developed a framework that will guide the discussions.

The stakeholders include books and reading specialists, namely writers, publishers and booksellers; government officials, renown educationalists, relevant regional and international organisations.

This regional seminar hopes to bring a strong awakening for all ministers of education in Africa, to work closely with ADEA and the African Union Commission (AUC)’s Education Division in ensuring that countries formulate and enact a National Book and Reading Policy that is implementable in collaboration with the National Book Development Councils, fully funded by respective governments.
