Interesting dynamics are at play on the cultural scene in Arab countries. An independent sector is emerging, which opens up space for contemporary artists and has an impact on the role and accountability of governments in cultural life.

Cultural Policies in Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine, Syria and Tunisia provides an introduction to the realities of public cultural administration and policymaking. A pioneering tool for policymakers and practitioners, both in the region and in the West.
