As part of its series on culture, trade, and digital (Culture, commerce et numérique), the Center for the Study of Integration and Globalization (CEIM) is making new publications on global governance and culture available online. These include a research dossier as well as the first 2014 issues of the series, which discuss a multitude of themes related to governance issue, including the Intergovernmental Committee for the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions and the trans-Pacific partnership.
The CEIM research dossier, titled "Gouvernance mondiale de la culture. Où en est-on?," includes several articles by specialists on regulation in the culture industries. Contributions are grouped into three broad categories: culture and trade agreements, culture and development, and culture and digital technologies.
In the February 2014 issue of the "Culture, commerce et numérique" series, other issues of global governance are discussed, such as balance of power in trade negotiations in the trans-Pacific partnership, and decisions reached by the Intergovernmental Committee of the 2005 UNESCO Convention. Other articles tackle such subjects as U.S.-South Korea free trade, the search for cultural partners in Asia, the importance of the cultural sector for different countries as documented in an Organization of American States (OAS) report and the new Creative Europe program.
The Center for the Study of Integration and Globalization (CEIM) brings together internationally recognized specialists in the political economy of integration and globalization. The main research themes are regionalism and integration, globalization and institutions, governance of the information society, the economy, and the defence of social and cultural dimensions in a context of globalization.
