The International Conference on Cultural Policy Research (ICCPR) is an international organization focused on interdisciplinary investigations into the meaning, function, and impact of cultural policies. ICCPR interprets cultural policy as the promotion or prohibition of cultural values and practices by governments, corporations, institutions, and individuals. ICCPR’s thematic focus on contemporary issues is intended to encourage the fruitful international exchange of ideas and research. In cooperation with the International Journal of Cultural Policy, ICCPR holds a biennial research conference focusing on these themes. In 2006, EDUCULT organized ICCPR in Vienna, and since then has been contributing to the conferences with a focus on questions of participation as well as educational and social issues. The director of EDUCULT is a member of the Scientific Committee that helps steer ICCPR.
