Strengthening the Governance of Culture in Developing Countries
Call for Applications
UNESCO launches an international call for applications for technical assistance missions: Strengthening the Governance of Culture in Developing Countries. The first stage of the project which seeks to strengthen cultural governance in developing countries, established a pool of cultural policy and governance experts. UNESCO is now launching the project's second phase, technical assistance missions in developing countries. These missions will be based on the needs and priorities of beneficiary countries and will be undertaken by top experts in the field of cultural policies. The missions will support the beneficiary countries in their effort to establish legal, regulatory, and/or institutional frameworks and/or introduce policies that address the role of culture in social and economic development, particularly thorough the cultural industries.
Public authorities and institutions from eligible countries can submit applications to UNESCO. The deadline for submission of applications to the UNESCO Secretariat is 30 June 2011.
