Strategic framework for the EU’s cultural policy

Autoria: European Commission, Culture and Creativity
Ano: 2019

Following the 2007 European Agenda for Culture, the Commission adopted the New European Agenda for Culture in 2018 to take into account the evolution of the cultural sector. The New Agenda and its accompanying Staff Working Document provide the framework for cooperation on culture at the EU level. These focus on the positive contribution that culture brings to Europe’s society, its economy and international relations. The Agenda also sets out enhanced working methods with Member States, civil society organisations and international partners. Member States define the main topics and working methods for policy collaboration on culture through Work Plans for Culture, which are adopted by the Council of the European Union. The New Agenda consists of three strategic areas, with specific objectives corresponding to social, economic and external dimensions.
