Re|Shaping Policies for Creativity (UNESCO, 2022)



The UNESCO Global Report, Re|Shaping Policies for Creativity – Addressing Culture as a Global Public Good, is the third edition of a series designed to monitor the implementation of the 2005 Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions. As the only Report of its kind, it provides a global overview of the state of the cultural and creative sectors through insightful new data that shed light on emerging trends at a worldwide level and puts forward policy recommendations to foster creative ecosystems that contribute to a sustainable world by 2030 and beyond.

First published in 2015, it is UNESCO’s third edition of this flagship Global Report.


The 2022 Global Report draws on the most recent and relevant global, regional, and national data to measure progress, identify persisting or new challenges, and set priorities towards achieving the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda within and within the cultural and creative sectors. The publication's scope is to produce and share knowledge to inform, inspire, and drive policy change and measures that ensure diverse and dynamic cultural ecosystems that are fair for creators, accessible to audiences, and beneficial for society.


The third edition of Re|Shaping Policies for Creativity is based predominantly on the analysis of quadrennial periodic reports submitted by 94 Parties to the Convention between July 2017 and November 2020 – which represents a 55% increase from the reports considered for its previous edition. The analysis was further enriched by a wide range of primary and secondary data, including the results of the 2018 UNESCO Global Survey on the implementation of the 1980 Recommendation concerning the Status of the Artist, a Civil Society Survey specially designed and implemented for this report and several new and updated bespoke global datasets.


By incorporating newly available data and expanding the layers of reflection in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, this Global Report signals the urgency of mitigating the vulnerabilities of the culture sector, exposed and deepened by this crisis, but also building on its strength and unique position to contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) set by the world for 2030. Each chapter is authored by an individual expert who worked closely with the Principal Editor, Burns Owens Partnership (BOP) Consulting (a research and strategy consultancy specializing in culture and the creative industries) and the UNESCO Secretariat to finetune the analysis and align the reflection points to the Convention’s Monitoring Framework and the 2030 Agenda. The Report is divided into 10 thematic chapters, grouped around four goals:


Goal 1 SUPPORT SUSTAINABLE SYSTEMS OF GOVERNANCE FOR CULTURE
Goal 2 ACHIEVE A BALANCED FLOW OF CULTURAL GOODS AND SERVICES AND INCREASE THE MOBILITY OF ARTISTS AND CULTURAL PROFESSIONALS  
Goal 3 INTEGRATE CULTURE IN SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT FRAMEWORKS  
Goal 4 PROMOTE HUMAN RIGHTS AND FUNDAMENTAL FREEDOMS

The introduction affirms the Report’s ambition to call on the cultural and creative sectors to face up to major global challenges, including poverty, gender inequality, climate change, and inequalities within and between countries, while also highlighting the potential of these sectors that can often be underestimated and even overlooked. The findings, good practice examples, and recommendations put forward in this third edition of the Re|Shaping Policies for Creativity Global Report could feed into the policy dialogue and debates leading up to the UNESCO World Conference on Cultural Policies and Sustainable Development – MONDIACULT 2022, to take place in Mexico City in September 2022.
