The Balkans and the European Union

Cultural Policy Research Award 2011

This paper was the project that won the 8th Cultural Policy Research Award in 2011.

In the light of inter-ethnic co-existence, this study examines discourses of multiculturalism by the European Union, Macedonians and Albanians in the process of EU membership. The study examines the rhetorical construction of discourse of multiculturalism from EU representatives and members of the Macedonian government. Using ideographic analysis, the author tries to identify the different competing conceptualisations of the concept of multiculturalism.

A systematic analysis of how cultural institutions approach the theme of "Migrants" and if they take migrants into account as target groups, how theyr react and with which results, had not been produced before the "Zentrum für Audience Development" at the Freier Universität Berlin undertook the study "Migranten als Publikum in öffentlichen deutschen Kulturinstitutionen – Der aktuelle Status Quo aus Sicht der Angebotsseite" in 2009.

Sharing Diversity

A research mapping of national approaches and policies relating to Intercultural Dialogue in Europe, conducted by ERICArts for the European Commission. What does Intercultural Dialogue mean for specific sectors such as education, culture and the arts, youth and sports? What does it involve legally and politically for the different national governments? And does this buzzword mean something to European citizens? This report aims to discuss and clarify the possible gap between the EU political agenda and the concrete ideas, attitudes and actions at the member-state level.

Differing Diversities

Cultural diversity, in all its forms, is posing a profound challenge to traditional formulations of cultural policy, and to our understanding of the public interests served by this policy. In most countries the artistic and cultural landscape has not evolved to reflect the realities of a changed social landscape. This rift threatens to undermine the legitimacy of cultural institutions and the public policy that supports them.
