The Geography of Cultural Policy: Regional Cultural Policy in Sweden
University of Borås, Swedish School of Library and Information Science.
2008 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This paper presents a currently running research project, which aims at exploring potential geographical and discursive shifts in regional cultural policy in Sweden. The backdrop against which these shifts are understood is that of globalization processes, understood as parallel processes of internationalization and decentralization in political-administrative organization. Two regional experiments, Region Skåne and Region Västra Götaland, carried out since the 1990’s, constitute the comprehensive case studies of the project. Within both regions, two municipalities and two cultural activities have also been selected for the project. By analyzing strategic documents and by interviewing key agents in the cultural policy field in the two regions and four municipalities, the construction of regional identity is explored. In this process of construction, the relations between strategy and implementation, centre and periphery and formal and informal agents are highlighted.
