Compendium of Reference Documents for Cultural Policies in Africa – 2006

This book was created and published by OCPA in cooperation with UNESCO, the International Organization of the Francophonie, and the Swiss Commission for UNESCO. In a single volume, it provides a collection of reference texts, resolutions, recommendations, and declarations concerning culture, particularly from OAU/AU, UNESCO, and the International Organization of the Francophonie (OIF), as well as the role of these texts in Africa’s development since the 1960s.

The Compendium also contains an introductory “Overview of Objectives and Priorities of Cultural Policies in Africa—from the Pan-African Manifesto (1969) to the Charter for the Cultural Renaissance of Africa (2006),” as well as a bibliography of some 600 documents and publications concerning cultural policies and cultural development in Africa from the UNESCO and OCPA databases.
