Local policies for cultural diversity, by United Cities and Local Governments - Working Group on Culture – September 2006

The main goal of the study entitled “Local policies for cultural diversity,” published in September 2006, was to investigate what types of public policies at a local level support the diversity of forms of cultural expressions. The introduction to the study states that it mainly analysed the policies and programmes developed by departments for culture, although the enhanced role culture plays in local policies also allowed the inclusion of policies and programmes developed by other municipal departments.

The study was commissioned to the Barcelona City Council’s Institute for Culture by the Division of Cultural Policies and Intercultural Dialogue of UNESCO.
