Towards cultural citizenship
Introduction This document is a summary of the report Towards Cultural Citizenship: Tools for Cultural Policy and Development, a Swedish contribution to the follow up of the Stockholm Plan of Action. There is an urgent need to strenghten the knowledge base on culture and human development. This is required in order to repair the "distorted, culture-neglecting" view of reality which has so far characterised most development efforts. The aim of the report is therefore to develop and consolidate a new cenceptual framework for the elaboration of tools for the assessment, planning and reporting of cultural policies for human development.
