Indicator Framework on Culture and Democracy

Presented on the 14th of October: the Indicator Framework on Culture and Democracy (IFCD), which has been developed by the Council of Europe with the support of the Hertie School of Governance, and ECF.

The IFCD is an innovative tool to assess and optimise cultural policies using reliable data and an online application. The indicator framework demonstrates the links between culture and democracy, using conventional and cutting-edge statistical methods. It helps mapping European trends in access to and participation in culture and generates comparable national and European survey data. It will enhance existing information systems on culture and will benefit related statistical projects.
