Cyprus/ 3. Competence, decision-making and administration  

3.3 Inter-ministerial or intergovernmental co-operation

Despite the fact that a number of Ministries are involved in certain aspects of cultural policy, there is not really a structured and concerted approach in dealing with cultural policy in a co-ordinated and integrated way.  Thus, co-operation and co-ordination between different ministries is encountered on an ad hoc basis and does not attain any institutional structure.  In this context, for example, there is a certain degree of co-operation between the Ministry of Education and Culture and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in promoting Cypriot culture abroad and for developing certain cultural activities that relate to cultural diplomacy.  Another example is the co-operation between the Departments of Education from the Ministry of Education and Culture with the Department of Antiquities of the Ministry of Communication and Works in order to promote educational projects as far as cultural heritage is concerned.
