Ukraine/ 4.2 Specific policy issues and recent debates  

4.2.8 Social cohesion and cultural policies

There are special programmes directed at the development of participation and social cohesion in each region, in the form of arts festivals, meetings and reviews. In most cases, funding for these events is derived from regional or local budgets. As a rule, key actors are civil society organisations and state-owned institutions.

Some good examples are internet centres in small towns and villages, opened with the support of international projects, which are accessible to all groups and are mainly free of charge.

The Ministry of Culture, jointly with the Development Centre "Democracy through Culture" and the Council of Europe, conducted a set of seminars in 2012 for Ukrainian cultural administrators on the regional and local level to introduce practical recommendations from the White Paper on Intercultural Dialogue into current policies (see also chapter 3.4.1 and chapter 4.2.7).
