Preparatory action on Culture in EU external relations - report

Motivated by the fact that “the European Union has no cultural relations strategy”, the European Commission mandated in 2011 a consortium of eight cultural organisations, institutes, and a consultancy to propose such a strategy.

The report presents (1) the first ever overview of the cultural relations strategies pursued by governmental and civil society actors in 26 of the EU’s strategic partners and Neighbours, plus detailed reports on each of these countries have also been produced[1] (2) It also gives constructive, ethical and practical recommendations as to how Europe can do better and be more effective in the field of international cultural relations. Finally, (3) the report evidences the considerable added value a European strategic approach can offer to all stakeholders including the EU institutions, Member States, European cities and regions, civil society actors, artists and cultural operators, cultural organisations and networks, as well as their counterparts elsewhere.

...and On the Move's activities are mentioned in various pages!
