WorldCP-Asia is a major new initiative to document the cultural policies of countries in Asia. The initiative is a central component in the development of WorldCP.
In 2012, WorldCP-Asia is being coordinated by a partnership between the International Federation of Arts Councils and Culture Agencies (IFACCA), the lead partner of WorldCP, and the WorldCP-Asia Secretariat, managed by the Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF).The WorldCP-Asia Secretariat will carry out key tasks including administering the project; partly funding pilot profiles; liaison with Asian governments towards securing national funding partners; stimulating policy dialogue, networking and mutual learning through expert meetings and online platforms; and, co-ordination with IFACCA.
In 2011, the WorldCP-Asia Secretariat was also coordinated by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism in South Korea (MCST) and the Korean National Commission for UNESCO (KNCU). We thank them for their support, and for hosting the 1st Experts' Meeting on Cultural Policy, in Seoul, South Korea, 27-28 July 2011.
