Impact, actors and partners

The Compendium of Cultural Policies & Trends is a public information and monitoring service designed for:

  • government officials to use the Compendium’s information in their policy making activities (policy conception, comparison, follow-up) and to keep the public informed about cultural policy developments in their country and in other countries;
  • researchers to conduct comparative policy analysis;
  • networks and NGOs to provide input for their information and lobbying activities;
  • journalists writing about cultural policy developments in their own country and to compare them with other countries;
  • students to use the Compendium as an information resource for their courses on cultural administration, management and cultural policy.

Connecting with our users is important to us. On this page, you can find websites of our partners, important actors within the field, resources and examples of how the Compendium’s information and data has been put to use.
