Daniela Angelina Jelinčić, Research Adviser at the IRMO's Department for Culture and Communication and Culturelink Team member, has published her new book entitled 'Innovations in Culture and Development. The Culturinno Effect in Public Policy'. The book covers a range of relevant topics on innovations in culture as drivers of sustainable development. Through the analysis of theoretical and practical policy frameworks, at the same time presenting practical examples of innovations in culture as well as recommendations for public policies, this book aims at proving the efficiency of culture in the general development of society, or at least in solving small-scale problems which societies face. The term 'culturinno effect' (culture + innovations), coined by D. A. Jelinčić, thus presents evidence of the inherent power culture has in fostering innovations for development and "it is hoped that, in the end, culture will get the place it deserves in the public policy framework due to its priceless role it has played throughout the history of human civilization as well as its role in today's everyday lives of societies". This interesting and innovative book serves as a valuable resource for innovative decision makers, students, artists, researchers and cultural workers who are prepared to offer a new view on arts/culture and respond to the challenges we face today.
