cS Explains


 Space for dialogue  Cultural relations 

Our Chair Damien Helly participated in the fifth and final meeting of ASEF's Recalibrate The Compass. The thematic roundtable brought together 16 experts from Asia and Europe to discuss how Covid-19 has impacted cultural exchanges and the funding resources facilitating them.


The EU's approach to Cultural Heirtage in Conflict and Crises

 Space for dialogue  Cultural heritage 

At the roundtable coorganised by culture Solutions and the EU Institute for Security Studies (EUISS), we reflected on EU's approach to protecting Cultural Heritage in conflict and crises, looked at case studies of protection and prevention from around the world: Yemen, Iraq, Ukraine, Georgia, Palestine, Turkey, Haiti.


 Policy analysis  Cultural relations 

The post reflects on the key themes discussed in the final report of the Voices of Culture structured global dialogue on international cultural relations. The possible next steps emphasise the role of the EU entities in close partnership with CSOs and the global cultural sector.


 Policy analysis  Cultural relations 

Based on the speech given by Damien Helly at the European Parliament’s public hearing on EU international cultural relations in Brussels in July 2022, this blog summarises or analyses on the implementation of the EU cultural relations policy framework.
