Special Issue in Cultural Trends

Cultural Policy Observatory Ireland announces a special issue on cultural policymaking and research on the island of Ireland for the peer-reviewed academic journal Cultural Trends.

Since 1989, Cultural Trends has been an important space that brings together and showcases empirically grounded research on cultural policy with a particular focus on arts, culture, heritage and media.
The critical consideration and investigation of cultural policy on the island of Ireland has long been missing from international debates and discussion.

This Special Issue has presented an opportunity to review how researchers across different disciplines approach and understand culture as a distinct area of public policy in Ireland.
