IFLA Goes Ahead With 2024 WLIC Venue

IFLA reaffirmed its decision to hold its 2024 World Library and Information Congress (WLIC) in Dubai, stating the following:

The Governing Board made the announcement on 19 June that IFLA would hold WLIC 2024 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. This sparked significant debate, with both critical and supportive voices, highlighting questions around different aspects of diversity and inclusion, freedom of expression, as well as the possibility for all of IFLA’s volunteer groups to organise sessions.

As an organisation that strives for a broad membership and volunteer base, all views are important. The Governing Board therefore decided to seek advice from IFLA Members around the world by means of a non-binding advisory referendum. …

In taking its decision, the Board reflected on both the overall votes and comments, but also the breakdown by region highlighted above, relative voting strengths of different regions, and the priority IFLA has given to increasing its presence in all world regions, reflecting its vocation to be the global voice of libraries.

For more information, read the news item.
