HOME  Research  Task force
In course of the proceeding development of the Policies for Culture programme, the area of cultural policy research has been identified as a key priority to be addressed. This decision was based on being aware of an immanent gap of communication between the research sector on one hand as well as policy makers and public administration on the other. This leads to an often arbitrary character of decision-making in the field of cultural policy. Throughout the entire SEE region there is an urgent need for independent research to evaluate policies and their actual impact and to use research results as a basis for good quality decision-making.

In 2004 and 2005, Policies for Culture specifically addressed this area by the means of a Task Force for Cultural Policy Research.

The Task Force aimed to use the rich pool of knowledge and expertise represented by the PfC network in order to respond to the strong need for consistent and professional reflection, analysis and research in the field of cultural policies in the region.

Objectives:
· raising awareness and advocate for the need for independent research, and create stronger links between policy makers and the research community;
· promoting regional networking in the field, i.e. the binding of research institutions (research institutes, universities, documentation centers, foundations, experts) that are already engaged on these issues and the development of research consortia;
· developing research capacities in the SEE countries;
· identifying and address key topics and areas, as well as best practices in this field, thus providing a more coherent overview of the region in the area of cultural policy-making.

Consultative group
In view of its further establishment a Consultative Group for the Task Force has been set up. The members of the group are: Vesna Copic (Head of the Cultural Policies Department, Ministry of Culture, Slovenia); Milena Dragicevic-Sesic (Rector of the University of Arts, Belgrade); Vjeran Katunaric (Professor of Sociology at Zagreb University of Philosophy); Yavor Koynakov (Director of the Euro-Bulgarian Cultural Centre, Sofia); Corina Suteu (President of ECUMEST, head of the Cultural Management Unit at Institut de l'Homme et de la Technologie, Nantes).
