Fourth International Conference on Cultural Policy Research

Organised by EDUCULT, Vienna in co-operation with the International Journal of Cultural Policy, 12-16 July 2006, Vienna, Austria




Iccpr 2006 aims to provide an outlet for interdisciplinary and international exploration of the concepts, function and impact of cultural policies. It intends to reflect a broad view of cultural policy encompassing culture as a "way of life" as well as, in the narrower sense, culture of the arts and cultural industries. It will be concerned with both, the policies of decision makers, of administration and institutions as well as the wider discourses related to the general conditions of culture.
I ccpr 2006 welcomes participants to Vienna, one of the world’s capitals of culture, music and architecture. In the spirit of this stimulating cultural environment, new trends and developments in cultural policy research will be presented and discussed. Furthermore, the conference aims to enable encounters between researchers, artists and persons engaged in the cultural sector and to create a lively forum for exchange of experiences and views from different perspectives.
