Greetings Open Education Friends:

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

Thank you for connecting with Mikhail at: fannrm at gmail.com

Warmest regards,
