In 2007, the Cultural Policy Research Award went to Amanda Brandellero, an English-Italian PhD researcher at the Amsterdam Institute for Metropolitan and International Development Studies (University of Amsterdam), for her research paper Crossing cultural borders? Migrants and ethnic diversity in the cultural industries. Amanda has accomplished an in depth theoretical study applying a specific interdisciplinary approach, and an inspiring empirical study on migrant entrepreneurship in the cultural industries in three European cities - Paris, London and Amsterdam.
By portraying the ‘ethnicity’ of the creative entrepreneurs in the areas of music, fashion and architecture, the author reveals important intercultural processes that (pre)determine the birth of creative production. This knowledge may result in fine tuning of the respective policy attitudes and instruments.
