Cultural Information and Research Centres Liaison in Europe (CIRCLE)
The Cultural Information and Research Centres Liaison in Europe (CIRCLE) is an independent think-tank dedicated to developing cultural policy models for Europe.
CIRCLE is a network of people concerned with cultural policy including researchers from many disciplines, scholars, documentalists, cultural practitioners and politicians. It is also a forum for institutions such as university departments, arts institutions, research organisations, national ministries, documentation centres and networks. CIRCLE identifies new issues and maps out what currently exists in terms of research and information and, is able to make this information available through online resources and databases.
CIRCLE's work crosses the whole of Europe (more than 35 countries), a variety of disciplines and a myriad of interested parties. For more than two decades, CIRCLE has maintained its reputation for being at the forefront of cultural policy debate and influencing current and future policy actions.
