New Compendium feature 2017: Summaries of national profiles

The compendiums are summaries highlighting key information from the traditional Compendium country profiles and follow a decision made at the Assembly of Compendium Experts in Wroclaw (November 2015). They give certain regard to cultural policy and related measures.

The piloting summarised compendiums range from 5-7 pages and are available for <link http: web files en azebaijan.pdf _blank>Azerbaijan, <link http: web files en croatia.pdf _blank>Croatia, the <link http: web files en czech_republic.pdf _blank>Czech Republic, <link http: web files en hungary.pdf _blank>Hungary, <link http: web files en italy.pdf _blank>Italy, <link http: web files en latvia.pdf _blank>Latvia, <link http: web files en norway.pdf _blank>Norway and <link http: web files en sweden.pdf _blank>Sweden.

The "THEMES" section was enhanced to include background and research documents and links to the country profiles, the extended information provided in this section can assist governments, NGOs and other Compendium users in their efforts to start monitoring and comparing cultural policies and related measures, including those aiming at improving access to arts, media and heritage activities or enhancing democratic governance processes.
