ifa Research Programme „Culture and Foreign Policy”

Within the framework of ifa’s Research Programme „Culture and Foreign Policy” researchers examine current issues related to foreign cultural and educational policy. In projects of three to six months, researchers provide actors in the field of foreign cultural and educational policy with up-to-date scientific findings in a concise and precise way, they formulate recommendations for future foreign cultural policy and they initiate discussion forums and other events among experts.

The ifa (German Institute for Foreign Cultural Relations) in co-operation with More Europe currently invites to apply for the following project:

European External Cultural Policy
The establishment of the European External Action Service (EEAS) strengthened the European Union’s capacity to act externally. As far back as 2008, the EU Council decided to emphasize the importance and the role of culture in EU external relations by developing global and regional strategies. Europe should be seen as more than just an economic community, namely, a community of shared culture and values, thus creating another level of dialogue with other cultures and countries and consolidating the EU’s ‘soft power’ as well as cultural relations and exchanges.

How does EU funding of the cultural sector abroad work? Who benefits from it? Which partners (foundations, NGOs, local cultural operators) are eligible for collaboration? Who actually uses these opportunities and what is the impact of such programmes and actions? (Overview)

What are the new models of funding cultural relations and exchanges? How is the involvement of the EU and Member States shaped? How can they work together including other actors? Are there any innovative project structures that are being experienced? Who are the actors involved and how does it work?

How could these new models be communicated to prospective actors, with what effect on the EU’s image in third countries? How does this policy relate to the effort of shared cultural action among the Members States of the Union? How innovative projects and proposed models (Damien Helly’s study for example) could improve EU cultural relations with third countries and the positioning of the EU and Member States as sustainable partners?
The study will also include an overview of development, European Neighbourhood and Partnership policies and instruments affecting/covering culture and thus serving external relations policies purposes, in addition to specific funding programmes of the cultural and media sector.
