CULTURAL RELATIONS – KEY APPROACHES IN FRAGILE CONTEXTS
HOW CULTURAL RELATIONS CAN ENHANCE PEACE AND STABILITY
This report aims to examine the linkages between cultural aspects, conflict and peace, with a particular focus on the place of international cultural relations in so-called ‘fragile’ countries and regions. An examination of eleven diverse examples of how cultural relations have addressed fragility, peace and stability in different contexts informs the analysis presented in the full report. Further to presenting the different ways in which cultural relations are connected to the five dimensions of fragility and the fostering of peace and stability, the report identifies a set of enabling factors and challenges to strengthen these connections.
