Short profiles

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.
