Although we are still at the start of the 21st Century, it is already possible to observe a pattern of numerous changes in the sphere of functioning of the cultural institutions. These trends include globalization of culture, development of cultural industries and creative industries, rapid technical and technological growth, occurrence of new cultural policy and cultural management concepts in cities, and regions or cross-border regions. Under these new circumstances, cultural management and cultural policy have started to be developed as an applied academic discipline in order to educate competent, skilled professionals for a wide area of the cultural sector, ranging from film, theater, philharmonic, museum and other sector-oriented operators to cultural development activists. The diversity of titles and names of professions is a sign of the diversity of social needs: Film producers, impresarios, stage managers, drama agents, art administrators, art officers, sociocultural animators, etc. The introduction of cultural policies as part of public policies of cities and regions (also cross-border cities and regions) had raised additional demand for such professionals, and this demand is backed by numerous projects of UNESCO or the European Union (e.g., COST Action 18126 Writing Urban Places. New Narratives of the European City). In this context, this Special Issue encourages researchers and scholars to send contributions on these critical issues or with regard to any other related topic that may promote the conceptual and practical development of cultural management and cultural policy in cities, regions or cross-border territories.
