"The Global Congress is the main convening of a global network of over 800 researchers, activists, and practitioners who work on the intersection of intellectual property and promotion of the public interest. The core goal is to promote evidence-based policy-making by fostering partnerships between academics and policy advocates from around the world."

IFLA will be hosting a workshop about copyright reforms for libraries, archives and museums to promote the advocacy work that these institutions are doing and to get feedback and to hear about the experience from an audience.
