Cultural policy has changed significantly, half a century after its invention as a category. The perspective of welfare has been substituted by the perspective of development; the logic of governance has superseded the logic of government. These changes can only be understood in the broader context of the changes that culture and politics have experienced during this time. The globalization of culture, its digital mutation, its enhanced weight in social and economic dynamics - all these factors influence the transformation of relations between culture and politics, and so also the definition and problems of cultural policy. The same happens with the mediation of politics, with its growing complexity (between the global and the local, the public and the private), and with its multicultural problems. The study of cultural policy should thus be opened up today for the consideration of the broader frameworks that constitute this object: culture and politics.
The ICCPR 2012 organized by the Centre for the Study of Culture, Politics and Society (CECUPS), University of Barcelona, in collaboration with the International Journal of Cultural Policy, is intended to address the challenge of rethinking cultural policy analysis from the broader parameters of the relationship between culture and politics.Co
