Reading Association of Russia

International Status

The goals of the Reading Association of Russia are to promote projects developed in Russia and empirical data obtained by Russian researchers at international conferences, to partake in the development and implementation of international projects, and to engage foreign experts in a discussion on the most important issues of reading and literacy in relation to education and culture.

The Reading Association of Russia (RAR) was founded as a non-profit organization in 1996 and the same year it was charted as a local council of the International Reading Association (IRA), now — International Literacy Association (ILA).

The RAR received a status of an interregional council of the Russian Federation in 2003 and in 2004 was registered in the IRA in this quality.

The RAR became affiliated with the International LiteracyAssociation as a national association in 2008 as a result of its efforts at the development of ties with the Federal Districts of the Russian Federation, the promotion of reading and literacy in Russia and its active participation in international congresses and European conferences on reading extensively featuring Russian teachers' practical experience.

The RAR unites 13 regional offices, which represent six out of seven Federal Districts of Russia.

A RAR representative in the Federation of European Literacy Associations (FELA) reports on the work of the Association every six months - see Documents.
