13th International Conference on Cultural Policy Research

The organisers of the 13th ICCPR (International Conference on Cultural Policy Research), hosted by the University of Warsaw, invite researchers to submit their proposal for papers for next year’s conference to be held in Warsaw, Poland, 19 – 23 August 2024. 

The title of the conference is “Cultural Policies in Democratic and Nondemocratic Regimes”. 

Cultural policies in democratic and non-democratic environments have historically been influenced by different cognitive perspectives. Non-democratic regimes sought to consolidate power and control culture, while democratic states valued freedom of expression and provided a general framework for artists. Today, cultural policies aim to defend global culture, and it's the ideologies behind them that have changed over the years.
