The 11th International Conference on Cultural Policy Research (ICCPR 2020) “Resilience of Cultural Policy” will take place 1-4 September 2020 at Doshisha University, Kyoto, in association with the Japan Association for Cultural Policy Research. A call for proposals is open.

The 11th International Conference on Cultural Policy Research (ICCPR 2020) will be held in the historical city of Japan, Kyoto. Hosted by Doshisha University in association with the Japan Association for Cultural Policy Research, ICCPR 2020 would like to welcome researchers and educators in the fields of cultural policy from all over the world.

The theme of ICCPR 2020 is Resilience of Cultural Policy. In the rapid globalization and digital transformation of recent years, one major challenge for cultural policy seems to be how best to maintain or strengthen regional, local or various representations of communities’ own culture. Cultural policies of many nations, in the meantime, are increasingly expected to work with (or for) other policy areas such as economic development, social inclusion and urban planning. Is such an approach to cultural policy crossing many policy areas negatively affecting ‘cultural policy proper’ concerns? Was there any time in history when cultural policy was independent, autonomous and detached from socio-economic aims of government? To what extent is cultural policy of today ‘resilient’, or should it be so? ‘Resilient’ to what forces and in what directions? These are some of the issues this conference would like to address with invited guests and participants from all over the world.
