European Capitals of Culture: Success Strategies and Long-Term Effects
By Beatriz Garcia, European Union/Institute of Cultural Capital, 2013, 229 pages
This report, written by Beatriz Garcia, documents common approaches and success strategies, highlights the strongest claims of long-term effect and analyses recurrent challenges that limit the Programme's ability to reach its full potential. Key recommendations are the establishment of a standardised evaluation framework, greater emphasis on comparative research, and the creation of a formal knowledge transfer programme so that future hosts can better benefit from the wealth of experiences developed in the last three decades. The report is published by the European Union / Institute of Cultural Capital, Room 2.37 John Foster Building, Liverpool, L3 9UW.
