Conclusion: Toward a Common World of National Minority Cultural Policy



The final chapter brings the book’s findings together to establish a new common world: the common world of national minority cultural policy. Through this common world, this chapter discusses the implications of the cultural industries turn in cultural policy—particularly where sub-states are concerned. In particular, this chapter discusses the significance of the cultural industries’ role in the development of identity and the implications this has on cultural policy—both in the context of sub-states and in the context of globalization. This chapter offers speculation on what this turn in cultural policy means for culture and identity moving forward and how the new common world can be applied for future research.
