This subject undertakes an in-depth study of the interplay between politics, policy and the creative economy under globalization. We examine how economic, social, cultural, technological and political developments in the post-Keynesian era have influenced the increasing internationalization of the arts and creative industries and the policies that shape them. Particular attention will be paid to the relationship between the state, the private sector and civil society through an analysis of the ways in which globalization shapes cultural policy and practices at local, regional, national and international scales.
