A joint venture between the Council of Europe and the ERICarts Institute, realised with a community of practising independent cultural policy researchers, NGOs, and national governments, the Compendium of Cultural Policies and Trends in Europe is an expanding European-wide information and monitoring system on cultural policy measures, instruments, debates, and cultural trends.
The International Federation of Arts Councils and Culture Agencies (IFACCA) has founded a new WorldCP platform, an international database of cultural policies, which is based on the Compendium model.
Currently the website includes profiles of 43 countries in English language which are targeted to a broad audience of policy makers and administrators, arts institutions and networks, researchers and documentation professionals, journalists and students. Some of the profiles are published also in their original languages, for instance, the cultural policy profiles of Austria, Germany and Liechtenstein in German language, and those of France and Monaco in French language. In view are the new profiles of Island, Luxembourg and Belarus.
The Slovene cultural policy profile has been compiled by Vesna Čopič from the Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Ljubljana and Andrej Srakar from the Institute for Economic Research who contributed the last update in the year 2015.
