23 and 24 April: 23 April is the annual World Book and Copyright Day, sponsored by UNESCO, when publishing houses, bookstores, libraries, cultural institutions and associations of authors mobilise across the world to promote reading, publishing and protection of intellectual property. This year the focus is on the blind and visually impaired for whom there is difficulty accessing books and other printed materials, which constitutes an obstacle to their full and effective participation in society. According to the World Blind Union, among the millions of books published worldwide each year less than 10% are published in formats that are accessible to the blind - a rate that drops to 1% in developing countries. UNESCO and its French partner Asfored (an association for professional training and development in the field of publishing) are organising a conference in Paris, France, on 24 April, titled Accessibility, what are the Challenges in Publishing? The Day also marks the beginning of the term of Conakry, capital of the Republic of Guinea, as World Book Capital, and along with the rest of the African continent it will be featured during the celebrations of the Day that will promote African literature at UNESCO headquarters.

4 May: The IIEP Strategic Debate Education 2030: Accessing Higher Education, What can be done to strengthen equity between students? Takes place in Paris, France, organised by the UNESCO International Institute of Educational Planning. In France, as in many countries, success in exams marking the end of secondary school is becoming increasingly generalised, reaching almost 80% of any given cohort. This undeniable quantitative progress nevertheless raises several questions which centre on the lack of equity access to higher education in France. Many national training systems fail to guarantee individual pathways to success that transcend students’ respective origins, be they social, cultural, territorial, or gender related. Based on field work carried out since 2007 in French secondary schools as well as a survey conducted in 2016 as part of his ministerial mission, the speaker Pierre Mathiot – Professor of Political Science at Sciences Po Lille, and Ministerial Delegate for Excellence in the French Ministry of National Education – will present essential principles and related actions that could form the basis of a public policy ensuring effective, not merely formal, equity between students. The debate is in French with simultaneous translation into English. Anyone unable to attend can register to watch a webcast.
