What is the role of culture in the European Union’s (EU’s) law and policies? In what ways have cultural issues been framed at the level of the EU, and in the pursuit of what objectives? The contributors explore key features of the EU’s cultural action and policies, examining their strengths and weaknesses at a time of unprecedented challenges – the recent economic crisis, globalisation and digitalisation, changes in cultural production, distribution and consumption. This timely edited collection will provide readers with a better understanding of the EU’s contribution to cultural governance and will be a valuable reference for students, scholars, and policy-makers.
