Access to Culture in the Digital Environment: Active Users, Re-use and Cultural Policy Issues
The article analyses both explicit and implicit policy approaches to regulating digital culture, as both remain relevant in ensuring that cultural content reaches its intended users.
This provides the background for the investigation of the results obtained through the comparative policy analysis executed in the project ‘Access to Culture. Policy Analysis’ where different policy approaches to digital access in six selected countries (Austria, Croatia, Norway, Spain, Sweden and Turkey) are presented and interpreted. This is done with the aim to provide better understanding of the digital access issues that have to be taken into account in effective policy making for the inclusive and open digital culture.
