The Cultural Policy and Management Yearbook (KPY Yearbook) calls for the submission of academic articles and book reviews on any field of cultural policy and management. The goal of the KPY Yearbook is to promote a new understanding towards cultural policy issues in Turkey, paying more attention to more inclusive and participatory approaches which take cultural diversity of the country into account. In addition it includes also recent developments of the cultural sector in Turkey and throughout the world and its contribution to the management of culture.
In each edition, there is a “Dossier” attributed to a special theme of cultural policy related issue, which is announced with an open call for papers as seen below; also miscellaneous articles from Anatolian cities and the region are commissioned and/or translated. The KPY Yearbook spotlights developments in the practice of cultural policy and management through original interviews with leading national/international cultural policy and management theorists and practitioners, and also publishes conference extracts, book reviews. This year issue will start a new section called “KPY selection” where recurrent and most important cultural policy and management issues of the year are highlighted.
The third issue of the Yearbook’s focus is Heritage for Society. We call for articles and reviews, that discuss and investigate the theory and practice of cultural heritage management and policies in Turkey and/or Europe and regional context, based on the principles of the Council of Europe’s Framework Convention on “Value of Cultural Heritage for Society” (Faro, 1995).
“Whilst the other international heritage conventions deal with how to protect and conserve cultural goods, the Faro Convention poses the question why and for whom the heritage is transmitted. It is based on the idea that knowledge and use of heritage form part of the citizen’s right to participate in cultural life as defined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The text presents heritage both as a resource for human development, the enhancement of cultural diversity and the promotion of intercultural dialogue, and as part of an economic development model based on the principles of sustainable resource use ”1
Based on the convention, the contribution to the KPY Yearbook can address the management and policies towards moveable, immoveable, tangible and intangible cultural heritage under the headings below:
- Social value and cultural diversity
- Conservation, interpretation, participation,
- Sustainable development, local and national
- Heritage, tourism and natural environment
