Azerbaijan/ 8.2 Cultural consumption and participation  

8.2.2 Policies and programmes

The Ministry of Culture and Tourism has initiated special programmes, starting from 2007, in order to broaden and promote participation in cultural life for different social strata. Besides the traditional privileged categories of the population, it is proposed to provide free and favourable access to museums, reserves and monuments for Nagorno-Garabagh War participants, martyrs' family members, disabled people, pensioners, orphans, secondary schools pupils and high school students, etc., as well as for all visitors on state official holidays, international museum and tourism days. All of these measures are intended to raise the social consciousness and cohesion of citizens by activating participation in the cultural life of society.
