Cultural Policy Yearbook

Cultural Policy Yearbook is an international, peer-reviewed publication, producing high-quality, original research published by Istanbul Bilgi University Cultural Policy and Management Research Centre (KPY). The Yearbook is a bilingual, and annual book published both in English and in Turkish in two separate volumes. CPY Yearbook consists of three sections including a dossier named “Focus” which consists of a title formed around the conceptualization and contemporary discussions on the chosen theme as well as "Open Space" and "Review".
The “Focus” theme is determined by the editor(s) appointed by the editorial board for each issue.
The “Open Space” gives coverage to articles on the latest developments and debates in the area of cultural policy and management which are not included in the “Focus”.
The “Review” includes short information, criticism, and commentary on publications, legislation, and international documents, events, works of art, and academic/cultural meetings.
