The Compendium of Cultural Policies and Trends started publishing short cultural policy profiles in 2017. These documents aim to summarise the cultural policy profiles from the database and give a quick overview of the most important elements of a country’s cultural policy.
In 2020, the structure of the short profiles was redeveloped. From now on, all new short profiles are structured as follows: 1) Facts and figures; 2) Cultural policy system (objectives, main features and background); and 3) Current cultural affairs (key developments and key themes). The new short profiles also include an organigram of how cultural policy making is organised and a table on public cultural expenditure by level of government.
Please find the available short cultural policy profiles below, including the profiles that were published before the redeveloped structure.
