Since 1979 the national reading associations in Europe, which are affiliated to the International Reading Association (now International Literacy 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. The pages of FELA’s current member associations can be reached via the name of the country below. Each Member Association is responsible for the information linked to this page.
