Norway/ 5.1 General legislation  

5.1.2 Division of jurisdiction

There is no general legislation regulating the division of cultural competence between the national, regional and local levels in Norway. Most of the culture priorities of the municipalities and counties are self-defined. Important exceptions are the responsibility of the counties and municipalities for public libraries determined by the Act on Public Libraries (1947) and the responsibility of the municipalities for music and culture schools that was brought into the Act on Education in 1997.
