About this book

This book explores how federalism — a unique, social, and political reality that influences policy development and implementation — contributes to shaping cultural policies in a variety of federations. Building on the cases of a wide variety of countries, including Argentina, India and Australia, this book presents the typical and distinctive institutional challenges that federalism brings to cultural policy. In particular, this book emphasizes four dimensions: the institutional and constitutional division of cultural powers; the governmental structures of cultural policy and the dynamics of cooperation and competition established between subnational and federal powers; local cultural policies, capital cities, and the place of municipal government; and the development of subnational cultural relations. Finally, this book also acknowledges the diversity of federations and federalisms and provides a portrait of different types of relationships between federal institutions and the cultural sphere.

Reviews

“This is an important addition to the literature on comparative cultural policy, and also a wide ranging primer on political institutions and political philosophy. As well as directly contributing to our understanding of cultural policy in federal nations such as the USA, Australia, and Canada, the comparative nature of the book makes it an essential read for all cultural policy scholars.” (Dave O’Brien, University of Edinburgh, UK)
“An original analysis that will be informative to students of both federalism and cultural policy. The detailed examples provide ample scope for comparison between both political systems and policy sectors.” (Clive Gray, University of Warwick, UK)
