The project analyses the issue of cultural policy and cultural diversity because cultural diversity in all its forms represents a fundamental challenge for the traditional interpretations of cultural policy, yet also for our self-image and understanding of how public institutions reflect this cultural diversity. The shift from the production of (cultural) homogeneity to the administration of diversity as a new social norm demands a new conception of the processes, mechanisms and relations required for democratic political development in the culturally diverse societies. In the course of the study, national reports were drawn up in the participating countries, Belgium, Bulgaria, Switzerland, Canada, Luxembourg, Britain and Austria. The österreichische kulturdokumentation was here responsible for the coordination and reporting back of the Austrian contribution.
