2021 ENCATC Policy DebateOnline
How to give an EULAC dimension to EU policies in the cultural, scientific and social domains?
The 2021 ENCATC Policy Debate on 6 May 2021 fostered discussion on how to design a better framework for enhancing collaboration between the EU and EULAC cultural and scientific institutions with a focus on “How to give an EULAC dimension to EU policies in the cultural, scientific and social domains?”
In particular, this event was designed to meet the following objectives:
- Gain updated knowledge on the current challenges of cultural relations between the European Union and Latin America and Caribbean;
- Propose recommendations for enhancing cooperation between cultural and scientific institutions/organisations from the European Union and Latin America and Caribbean.
To promote the careers of young researchers internationally and disseminate EU research outside Europe, ENCATC closed the Policy Debate with the presentation of its Book Series “When Cultural Policies Change: Comparing Mexico and Argentina”.
As the Policy Debate was related to the topic of external relations, participants were strongly encouraged to follow the 2021 ENCATC Academy which took place online from 12-14 May and built on the discussions of the debate.
The Policy Debate is an initiative of ENCATC done in partnership with New York University, Goldsmiths University of London, the University of Barcelona, the Association of Arts Administration Educators, and with the support of the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.

When Cultural Policies Change: Comparing Mexico and Argentina
The ENCATC Policy Debate will also be the occasion to revisit valuable research "When Cultural Policies Change: Comparing Mexico and Argentina" by Elodie Bordat-Chauvin published in the ENCATC Book Series on Cultural Management and Cultural Policy Education.
This research looks through a comparative and historical analysis to shed light on the emergence, institutionalization and transformation of the cultural policies of two major Latin American countries: Mexico and Argentina. It gathers observations, unique archive material and more than ninety semi-directive interviews with Secretaries of Culture, intellectuals, interest groups leaders, cultural managers and members of unions who all played a role in these countries’ cultural policies in the last thirty years.
