By Milena Dragicevic Sesic and Nina Mihaljinac, with the contribution of Mohamed Amine Moumine, Med-Culture Programme, 2016, 80 pages
The study Higher Education and Training in Cultural Management and Cultural Policies in Southern Mediterranean Countries identifies and provides comprehensive information on available cultural management and cultural development training programmes for professionals and students interested to work in the creative and cultural sectors in Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine and Tunisia.
It is the first study of its kind mapping and evaluating existing models, formats and contents of higher education and training in the field of cultural management and cultural policies, and giving recommendations to different actors in the field. The study also identifies what is at stake in each country in terms of policies towards life-long learning and existing educational frameworks that focus on raising competences and skills of cultural operators and managers in the region. The present study should allow all interested local, regional and international operators to develop, create or improve their vocational training programmes in cultural management and complement gaps in existing programmes by relying on existing capacities and introducing new initiatives (e.g., training of trainers). The present study should also contribute to inform representatives of universities and ministries of higher education of the priorities to address, in order to attain better proposals in terms of cultural policies and cultural management education; ones that meet the expectations of students and consistent with the needs of the job market.
The present study has been produced with the assistance of the European Union. The content of the study published under 'Thematic Studies' is the sole responsibility of the Med Culture Technical Assistance Unit.
