L’accès à la culture dans l’Union européenne

10-07-2017

La culture, notion large aux interprétations multiples, est une compétence des États membres. Cependant, le traité sur le fonctionnement de l’Union européenne investit cette dernière d’une mission de soutien aux politiques culturelles des États membres, de protection du patrimoine culturel et de promotion de la culture et de la coopération culturelle.

La culture, notion large aux interprétations multiples, est une compétence des États membres. Cependant, le traité sur le fonctionnement de l’Union européenne investit cette dernière d’une mission de soutien aux politiques culturelles des États membres, de protection du patrimoine culturel et de promotion de la culture et de la coopération culturelle. Porté par la conviction que la culture peut jouer un rôle dans l’intégration sociale, l’éducation et le bien-être, en matière de consommation et grâce à une participation active, le programme de travail de la Commission en faveur de la culture fait d’une culture ouverte et accessible un objectif des actions culturelles de l’Union. En guise de loisir et dans une optique d’enrichissement personnel, on consomme généralement des biens et des services culturels en se rendant à des événements culturels, comme des concerts, des projections de films, des pièces de théâtre, des expositions ou des spectacles de danse, en visitant des sites du patrimoine ou des musées, et en lisant des livres et des journaux. En mesurant et en évaluant les effets de la consommation culturelle sur la vie des Européens, ainsi que le coût, la disponibilité, l’accessibilité et l’attractivité de l’offre culturelle, les législateurs qui élaborent les politiquent culturelles et les fournisseurs de financement peuvent prendre des décisions éclairées quant aux orientations et aux risques à prendre. Le fait de soutenir l’accès à la culture et la consommation culturelle peut aussi contribuer au développement du secteur de la culture ainsi que de l’industrie de la création et de la culture, qui ont largement gagné en importance ces dernières années. Ces secteurs, qui ont résisté à la crise de 2008, représentent environ 3,5 % du PIB et 3 % des emplois de l’Union. Les biens et les services culturels proposés dans l’Union européenne sont nombreux et diversifiés, mais il manque un chaînon, à savoir le soutien à la demande eu égard au développement du public et à la promotion d’un «régime culturel» varié.

Integrating migrants and their children through education

15-03-2016

Migrants' life stories reveal different levels of difficulty or ease in the process of integration. The key importance of education as a means of integration is widely acknowledged. For a number of years, the European Parliament has called for tangible commitments and proposed practical measures to integrate migrants and their children through education, training and the recognition of skills.

Combating 'honour' crimes in the EU

09-12-2015

Awareness of 'honour' crimes has increased in the EU in the past decade. Even though the majority of such crimes still usually go unreported, even when made known to the police, this type of crime has often been miscategorised. Experts have warned that this type of violent behaviour is different from, for example, domestic violence, because perpetrators are usually groups of people who find rationale for their crime in their cultures or traditions. The perpetrators believe that by abusing or even ...

Awareness of 'honour' crimes has increased in the EU in the past decade. Even though the majority of such crimes still usually go unreported, even when made known to the police, this type of crime has often been miscategorised. Experts have warned that this type of violent behaviour is different from, for example, domestic violence, because perpetrators are usually groups of people who find rationale for their crime in their cultures or traditions. The perpetrators believe that by abusing or even killing the victim, they are protecting the family's or the community's 'honour', which has somehow been 'tarnished' by the behaviour of the victim. Globally, the majority of 'honour' crimes are committed in the Middle East and southern Asia. Even though such crimes have mostly been associated with Islam, they also occur in Hindu, Sikh, Druze, Christian and Jewish communities. The EU and the Council of Europe have given much attention to 'honour' crimes, mostly through documents dealing with violence against women in general. Although the incidence of 'honour' crimes is higher outside the EU, increased migration and subsequent problems with integration of immigrants into host communities have contributed to these types of crimes becoming a serious issue for some EU countries as well. Apart from individual, national efforts, EU institutions have also taken steps to combat 'honour'-based violence, mostly within the framework of combatting gender-based violence. The European Parliament has specifically addressed the issue through several resolutions covering 'honour' crimes as well as other types of violence over vulnerable groups. The EU institutions have also shown concern for victims outside EU borders, and repeatedly address these issues in countries wanting to join the EU (for instance, Turkey) and in others such as Pakistan and Yemen.

European Historical Memory: Policies, Challenges and Perspectives

15-04-2015

This note seeks to provide some reflections on the challenges, current policies and possible future prospects of 'historical memory' in a European context. Based on acknowledging the complex nature of collective memories in general and shared European historical remembrance in particular, including their susceptibility to political instrumentalisation, it is argued that a critical 'culture of remembering' needs to be developed.

This note seeks to provide some reflections on the challenges, current policies and possible future prospects of 'historical memory' in a European context. Based on acknowledging the complex nature of collective memories in general and shared European historical remembrance in particular, including their susceptibility to political instrumentalisation, it is argued that a critical 'culture of remembering' needs to be developed. Such a culture requires increased efforts for nation states to come to terms with their own respective pasts in an unbiased way, yet at the same time embracing common European principles and values. In this context, the vital role of education as a tool to create an informed historical consciousness is emphasised, which provides the basis for dealing confidently not only with Europe’s past, but also present and future.

ASEAN: building a Socio-Cultural Community

03-12-2014

In 2007 the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) launched a Socio-Cultural Community as one of three pillars (the other two being the Economic and Political-Security Communities) comprising the ASEAN Community, to be completed by 2015. This represented a new departure for ASEAN, which in the past has cooperated mainly on security and economic matters. To date, however, progress on the Socio-Cultural Community has been limited.

Indigenous Peoples, Extractive Industries and Human Rights

18-09-2014

The present study examines the human rights impacts of the extractive industries on indigenous peoples worldwide. It finds that there continue to be significant human rights risks associated with mining, oil and gas extraction falling disproportionately on indigenous peoples. It argues that the growing demand for non-renewable resources and the need to explore and exploit resources in ever more invasive ways suggest that such activities are likely to impinge even more on the lands of indigenous communities ...

The present study examines the human rights impacts of the extractive industries on indigenous peoples worldwide. It finds that there continue to be significant human rights risks associated with mining, oil and gas extraction falling disproportionately on indigenous peoples. It argues that the growing demand for non-renewable resources and the need to explore and exploit resources in ever more invasive ways suggest that such activities are likely to impinge even more on the lands of indigenous communities living in countries with important resource reserves. The paper acknowledges the major efforts being made by industry associations to address these issues through voluntary guidelines but finds that, notwithstanding, conflicts and violence persist and that further measures are required to protect the rights and interests of indigenous peoples. The universal acceptance of the 2007 Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples provides impetus to renewed efforts to ensure implementation of the provisions in practice. The paper concludes by recommending, among other things, that the European Union as one of the regions championing the Declaration at the United Nations take the initiative to develop a region-wide framework for extractive industries that sanction companies and provide legal redress in cases where the human rights of indigenous peoples are violated.

Note d'information sur l'application de l'article 151.4 du traité ce

18-06-2007

La présente note d'information apporte quelques réflexions sur la mise en oeuvre de l'article 151.4 du Traité et sur la nécessité de prendre en compte dans d'autres domaines de l'UE les spécificités des secteurs culturels et créatifs. Elle souligne le fait que le contenu de l'article 151.4 du Traité est d'application obligatoire, pas facultative, et préconise la mise en place d'un examen systématique des éventuels impacts culturels des activités menées dans ces autres domaines

Cultural Diversity and the Information Society

01-07-2001

The forces of globalisation and technology development are paradoxical by nature, offering both threats and opportunities for cultural diversity. Yet the information society is currently perceived only as an economic imperative in a new environment shaped by rapid information technology developments, based on visions shaped primarily by technologist and business concerns and priorities. The prevailing options embedded in these visions, such as globalisa-tion based on cultural homogenisation, are ...

The forces of globalisation and technology development are paradoxical by nature, offering both threats and opportunities for cultural diversity. Yet the information society is currently perceived only as an economic imperative in a new environment shaped by rapid information technology developments, based on visions shaped primarily by technologist and business concerns and priorities. The prevailing options embedded in these visions, such as globalisa-tion based on cultural homogenisation, are questionable not only from a political and social standpoint, but also in economic terms. In the final analysis, information society develop-ments will hinge on political and social acceptance, for better or worse
