Cultural policy intersects with political, economic, and socio-cultural dynamics at all levels of society, placing high and often contradictory expectations on the capabilities and capacities of the media, the fine, performing, and folk arts, and cultural heritage. These expectations are articulated, mobilised and contested at - and across - a global scale. As a result, the study of cultural policy has firmly established itself as a field that cuts across a range of academic disciplines, including sociology, cultural and media studies, economics, anthropology, area studies, languages, geography, and law. This Routledge Handbook of Global Cultural Policy sets out to broaden the field's consideration to recognise the necessity for international and global perspectives.

The book explores how cultural policy has become a global phenomenon. It brings together a diverse range of researchers whose work reveals how cultural policy expresses and realises common global concerns, dominant narratives, and geopolitical economic and social inequalities. The sections of the book address cultural policy's relation to core academic disciplines and core questions, of regulations, rights, development, practice, and global issues.

With a cross-section of country-by-country case studies, this comprehensive volume is a map for academics and students seeking to become more globally orientated cultural policy scholars.

Reviews for The Routledge Handbook of Global Cultural Policy

`This Handbook not only re-thinks and re-conceptualizes the dimensions of global cultural policy studies, but also documents up-to-dated policy cases from global north to global south.' - Anthony Fung, Professor, The Chinese University of Hong Kong and Beijing Normal University 'Research and scholarship in cultural policy has grown in recent years alongside a continuing expansion in the interpretation of the concept at a practical policy-making level. How do these developments play out in an increasingly globalised world? This volume brings together a wide range of original essays that consider the political, economic, sociological and cultural dimensions of cultural policy in a context of globalisation and international cultural relations. The contributors are drawn from a variety of disciplines, intellectual traditions and geographical origins. Based on a thoughtful division of the subject matter into coherent sections, and edited by acknowledged leaders in the field, the book will appeal to scholars, researchers and policy-makers concerned about culture and policy in international affairs today.' - David Throsby, Distinguished Professor of Economics, Macquarie University, Australia 'A must-have for any arts and culture scholar, this book provides a walkthrough of the weird, wired world of cultural policies around the globe, plus a foundational survey of their roots, theories and practices, from the field's chief protagonists' - Dr. Abigail Gilmore, Senior Lecturer, Arts Management and Cultural Policy, University of Manchester
