Policy seminar: Cultural heritage policies for a troubled Europe - Proposals from the CulturalBase Social Platform - 31 January 2017, Bozar, Brussels

[Source: Research & Innovation] Europe is in trouble. The Great Recession has heavily hit Southern Europe and has polarized the Continent between North and South. Growing nationalism in many EU countries and the increasing division of national societies provoke a tendency to fragmentation. Racism and xenophobia are also on the rising nearly everywhere. The crisis is deep and manifold and there are not simple remedies for it. But some of the most important European troubles are cultural in nature and others, like the economic ones, can be fruitfully connected to culture and cultural development. Therefore, cultural policy presumably can play a significant role in facing the current situation. The European Year of Cultural Heritage will offer a strategic opportunity for highlighting the benefits of acting on this field. This policy seminar organized by CulturalBase aims to contribute to clarify the path that cultural heritage policies should follow for better addressing the challenges that Europe is confronting nowadays.
