I’d like to introduce Mikhail Volchak. He is a researcher at Essex University (UK) and is a member of Creative Commons Belarus.
Mikhail is working on his masters dissertation re: the right to education in the Global South and how traditional copyright is inhibiting access. He is trying to connect with people working on similar topics.
Mikhail asked that I forward this note:
I make research about right to education in the global South. The main points it will reveal: (1) what barriers are created by copyright on access to learning material; (2) what tools from international Human Right law can be used for protecting the access and (3) what are pluses and minuses of existing solutions.
I would like to communicate with researchers, activists, teachers, librarians from or who works with the issue in developing countries.
I also suggested, to Mikhail, that he might join: http://go-gn.net
... and connect with the researchers at: http://roer.cemca.org.in/
