The International Journal of Cultural Policy aims to provide an outlet for an interdisciplinary and international exploration of the nature, function and impact of cultural policies.It includes a broad view of cultural policy, encompassing culture as a "way of life" as well as culture in the narrower sense of the arts and cultural industries. It is concerned both with the policies of institutions and with the wider discourses which relate to the general conditions of culture. The Journal addresses itself to policy-makers, practitioners, academics and students with a professional interest in the subject. It carries research papers, information on research in progress, comparative studies, polemical articles and book reviews which are likely to be of interest to an international readership. Some editions of the journal include a series of articles designed aroung particular themes, which may relate to aspecific set of issues, a geographical region or a particular cultural form. Although the Journal includes some material on the technical aspects of cultural management, the emphasis of the Journal is on cultural policy and politics ( kulturpolitik), to which it adopts a pluralistic approach. The Historical range is not limited to any given period, but the journal is primarily concerned with material that is relevant to the contemporary world, and which contributes to a fruitful international exchange of ideas.
