Throughout the two years of its activities, the primary aim of the project ‘EU Competences and National Cultural Policies: Critical Dialogues’ (September 2016 –August 2018) was to promote discussion and reflection on the impact of the EU agenda on the Croatian cultural policy. The project contributed to enhancing knowledge about the impact of the EU policies and its processes on the national cultural sector and created synergies between national and EU stakeholders in the domain of culture. All the planned project activities have been realized according to the initial plan. Two major international events, three stakeholders group meetings, and a number of supporting meetings and events have been organized, and a number of analytic outputs have been published on the website.
The final meeting of the CULPOL project is planned to be held on 11th June 2018 at the Library of the Institute of Development and International Relations (IRMO) in Zagreb. One of CULPOL’s final outputs is the publication of the special issue of the scientific journal Croatian International Relations Review (CIRR) entitled ‘European Union and Challenges of Cultural Policies: Critical Perspectives’ (Vol. 24 No. 83). As part of the project wrap up, this event will serve as an opportunity to promote the special issue, highlight its contributions and present the results of the project.
Stay tuned for more information on the articles and the content of the special issue!
