This broad-ranging, interdisciplinary report breaks new ground by providing hard and comparative data in the hybrid field of culture and development. It addresses questions such as the room left for different approaches to development in the face of the tremendous forces of globalization and outlines major world trends and processes such as the conditions of indigenous cultures and populations. The impact of global markets on culture and the role of cultural policy in managing the direction of economic and cultural change are assessed. The report stresses the complexity of cultural indicators, emphasizing the need to broaden the scope of measurable and reported aspects of world culture beyond the mere production and consumption of cultural goods in terms of the market economy. The contributions in this report, be they from economists, social scientists, anthropologists or other reputed specialists, point out that many local cultures and art forms are stimulated by intercultural contact and global markets, rather than crushed by them.
