  • Relevant NGOs (NGO)

Since 1979  the national reading associations in Europe, which are affiliated to the International Reading Association have acted together as IDEC. These Associations cover the continent from Finland to Portugal, from Iceland to Greece. In 2008 these associations formed FELA.
