Yearbook 2010

Yearbook 2010The present Cultural Policy and Management Yearbook is the second to be published by the Centre for Cultural Policy and Management (KPY) at Istanbul Bilgi University. Embodying the Centre’s belief that intensive cultural policy research is a precondition for any informed public debate on cultural policy in Turkey, Yearbook 2010 embraces current cultural policy literature and local practices in Turkey, as well as recent research on education as one of the key issues in the cultural sector. It also offers a general appraisal and constructive criticism of shared experience in the field.

Central to Yearbook 2010 is the theme of cultural diversity, where discussion focuses on an important recent document: the UNESCO Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions, adopted in Paris in October 2005. As far as political developments in Turkey are concerned, the achievements of a number of Anatolian cities as well as the challenges they have faced in the wake of the recent local elections, together with the preparations for Istanbul as the European Cultural Capital 2010, have demonstrated that cultural development at city level remains a fundamental topic for ongoing policy reform debates. This is true not only in Turkey but also around the world, as is shown by the important contributions of a number of international researchers, who explore cultural developments on local, regional and urban levels. These are presented in a separate dossier: ‘Cultural Policy and Cities revisited’, which complements the topics addressed in our first edition, Yearbook 2009, and demonstrates the timeliness of this publication project as well as its future potential.
