kpy yıllık

The Cultural Policy and Management Research Centre (KPY) at Istanbul Bilgi University is once again delivering its annual publication, covering major issues and debates of the 2014-2015 period. This 2014-2015 issue is the fifth in the KPY Yearbook series, published by Istanbul Bilgi University Press. The central theme of the 2014-2015 Yearbook is the changing relationship between state and culture – thus the overall title of the Focus section is Cultural Interventions. It is edited by Kevin Robins and Burcu Yasemin Şeyben.
