This book aims to identify concretely who the makers and shakers of local cultural policies are in today’s Europe, and, by doing so, to put forward the theoretical premises that frame the future evolution of local urban policies – those that directly influence the individual’s level of cultural participation and well being. Culture, as a fourth pillar of development in relation to human rights, and urban space as the place for cultural participation, are only two of the key issues discussed in the guide.” – Corina Şuteu, President of the ECUMEST Association, Bucharest; Director of the Romanian Cultural Institute, New York.
