Report on Policy Research by IFACCA Members released

27 February 2015, International

IFACCA is very pleased to announce the publication of D’Art 26(b) Policy Research by IFACCA Members: A Report.

Knowledge management, information exchange and analysis are an essential part of IFACCA’s activities. In developing the research strategy for 2015-2018, IFACCA surveyed its members about their current research priorities and the use and application of cultural policy research in strategic planning, governance and policy-making . The aim of the survey was to learn more about the influence of research on policy planning and decision-making as well as to compare the scope, activities and partnerships that comprise members’ research programmes. 

The preliminary survey results were presented at the 4th IFACCA Researchers’ Meeting that took place in Hildesheim, Germany, on 7-9 September, 2014 to coincide with the International Conference on Cultural Policy Research (ICCPR).  These results were also presented at a panel session during the ICCPR that IFACCA coordinated and chaired entitled, Cultural policy research and its impact on long-term policy planning.
