Law and legislation

Which legislation impacts culture and what kind of sector-specific legal provisions are in place? How are the procedures for the allocation of public funds for culture legally defined? The theme law and legislation provides an overview of national legal systems for cultural policy making. The Compendium also monitors the implementation of European cultural conventions and charters, as well as more general legislation such as social security frameworks, tax laws and language laws.
