Developing Cultural Industries : Learning from Palimpsest of Practice

January 1, 2014

Exploring the connection between culture and broader goals of human development, this research focuses on cultural and creative industries in what is commonly referred to as 'developing countries'.

Combining an empirical study of the cultural industries of Africa with an understanding towards broader insights regarding global implications of the European debate surrounding creative industries, De Beukelaer's work will greatly benefit the thinking on cultural policy.This publication is the result of the 9th Cultural Policy Research Award in 2012.
