Geneva, Switzerland, and Online

For the first time the WIPO Assemblies, the main policy and decision making bodies of WIPO (the World Intellectual Property Organization), are taking place in July instead of the usual time of year in October.

Items of special interest to EIFL are the Report on the Standing Committee on Copyright and Related Rights (SCCR), the Assembly of the Marrakesh Treaty to Facilitate Access to Published Works for Persons Who Are Blind, Visually Impaired or Otherwise Print Disabled, as well as general statements where countries set out their position on all the issues under consideration.

For the last two years, participation at the annual WIPO Assemblies has taken place in hybrid mode, with member state delegates in Geneva participating in person and organizations with observer status, such as EIFL, joining remotely. It is hoped that a physical meeting will be possible in 2022 - this will be decided by WIPO in consultation with member states and in accordance with current guidance from the United Nations and Switzerland (the host country).
