Cultural Policy Implementation: Theoretical Conceptualization and Models

Audronė Pauliukevičiūtė, Alvydas Raipa


Rapidly changing global and technological world, continuous progressive change and cultural transformations determine changes in country’s management systems, in separate spheres of public policy and management. Cultural policy implementation is influenced by political/ideological, economic/organizational, cultural/technological challenges, and despite many research projects that are analyzing questions of cultural policy, there is still a lack of a broader approach to cultural policy conceptualization, process related problems. Therefore, the goal of this article is to reveal theoretical conceptualization of cultural policy implementation and its models. The object of the work is cultural policy implementation concepts and theoretical models. Two objectives have been formulated, seeking to achieve the main goal: conceptualize the cultural policy, reviewing concept interpretations, also describing cultural policy implementation as a sphere of public policy implementation; describe state level cultural policy implementation theoretical models. The authors of this article provide a wide range spectrum of cultural policy implementation concepts, describing basic models, revealing and visualizing cultural policy implementation process in the context of general variables of public policy implementation process (regardless of any of the model chosen).
