Audiobooks launched introducing Marrakesh Treaty and the Convention on the Rights of the Child

A series of audiobooks introducing the Marrakesh Treaty to Facilitate Access to Published Works for Persons Who Are Blind, Visually Impaired, or Otherwise Print Disabled, and the Convention on the Rights of the Child, have been recently launched on the Ximalaya FM, an online audio-sharing platform in China.

These audiobooks were jointly produced by Ximalaya FM and the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund’s branch in China to raise the public’s awareness of the protection of the rights and interests of children and the visually challenged. The Marrakesh Treaty took effect in China on May 5.

According to UNICEF China, the audiobook covers common issues surrounding the convention and provides relevant historical background. These elements can help all children better understand their rights. All children and persons with dyslexia should have equal access to knowledge and the opportunity to develop and realize their potential, according to the treaty and convention.
