European Law and Cultural Policies / Droit européen et politiques culturelles


Edited By Céline Romainville

The present book intends to critically examine the paths taken by the EU for cultural questions and how it integrates it into the whole of its parts. This means describing, explaining and evaluating the objectives, the nature, the extent and the impact of European interventions in cultural matters in order to understand in what measure European law assumes, respects, protects and promotes the multidimensionality of cultural policies, and, in fine, culture itself. Le présent ouvrage entend interroger de manière critique les voies par lesquelles l’Union européenne s’empare de la question culturelle et l’intègre dans l’ensemble de ses composantes. Il s’agit donc de décrire, d’expliquer et d’évaluer les objectifs, la nature, la portée et l’impact des interventions européennes en matière culturelle afin de comprendre dans quelle mesure le droit européen assume, respecte, protège et promeut la multidimensionnalité des politiques culturelles et, in fine, de la culture elle-même.

Les effets des interventions européennes sur la diversité culturelle



Abstract – Effects of EU Interventions on Cultural Diversity

The existence of European interventions in the cultural field has made necessary the definition of a general guideline within that field. At a very early stage, this is the idea of cultural diversity which imposed itself because it was both the most acceptable for Member States and the most conform to the spirit of the European integration. The question of the content of this notion has been progressively addressed, on a non-systematic basis. As a matter of fact, cultural diversity can nowadays be defined in reference with the sum of the European interventions in the cultural field. Those interventions have therefore not only participate in the emergence of this notion but also have contributed to define it at a substantial level. They also participate actively to the diffusion of the notion of cultural diversity within the Member States and at the international level. However, the notion elaborated at this latter level does not reflect exactly the one that was developed at the European level because of the great differences regarding the logics animating the two levels.
