Policy & Research Series on Cultural Policy and Governance

Cover for UNESCO publication on working conditions for artists. Title on graphic of a green circle, one quarter of it split away and sliding downwards.

One of UNESCO’s roles is to facilitate the collection, analysis and dissemination of information, statistics and best practices relevant to the 2005 Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions.

The Policy & Research series examines emerging trends in cultural policy and governance, and offers an in-depth analysis of key topics to reveal today’s policy landscape. In doing so, it aims to inspire cultural policymakers and advocates to make innovative, evidence-based decisions that stimulate the growth of dynamic creative sectors around the world.
