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.

At first, it is recalled that a politologist unambiguous standpoint does not exist and that internal pluralism is part of its interest. The text discusses then the main conclusions drawn by Jean-Gilles Lowies and Renaud Denuit in their respective contributions: briefly, the weakness and often indirect character of European cultural policies do not prevent their increase nor the awareness of their importance. It examines afterwards the ambiguous relationship between the European cultural identity, which remains hard to define, and a political integration project supposed to be suffering from a legitimacy deficit, but which is to be enhanced by cultural policies. Two artists’ recent contributions are given the last words due to their impressive visions on Europe: the play L’Européenne, written by David Lescot and created in 2007, and the exhibition Domo de Europa Historio...
