Brief description of institution (250 words max)

The foundation for cultural policy research CUPORE studies the interaction between cultural policy and ethnic diversity in the Finnish capital region (Helsinki, Espoo, Vantaa and Kauniainen). The project is lead by senior researcher Pasi Saukkonen and is carried out in collaboration with the City of Helsinki Information Office and the Cultural Diversity Coordinator at the Art Museum Development Department of the Finnish National Gallery.

 

The research focuses on how legal and programmatic objectives in Finnish cultural policy and integration policy are realised in practice and how the arts and culture impact immigrants and the new ethnic diversity in different sectors and institutions. The project provides decision makers and central actors with information which helps them to prepare for future development. The study shows neglected areas and reveals examples of good practice as well as bad experiences.

 

During 2006, Pasi Saukkonen and Miikka Pyykkönen have carried out a pilot study on cultural policy and ethnic diversity in the city of Helsinki. There have also been discussions and negotiations with central actors of the field in the Helsinki capital region. 

In 2007, the relevant legal and political framework have been analysed. Furthermore, the cultural landscape in the capital region will be scrutinised from the point of view of ethnic diversity and intercultural dialogue.

The project is related to another study which compares Finnish, Dutch and Belgian cultural policies from the point of view of ethnic and cultural diversity.
