Research Programme "Culture and Foreign Policy"
Within the Research Programme "Culture and Foreign Policy" experts carry out research on topics related to international cultural relations and formulate policy recommendations for future external cultural policy strategies. With a scientific foundation concerning basic themes and areas of international cultural relations the ifa as a centre of competence offers so far unique expert advice to foreign cultural policy actors. The research results are reflected in expert talks, at international conferences and public discussions, and published in the ifa Edition Culture and Foreign Policy.
