Culture and Values at the Heart of Policy Making

An Insider's Guide

Culture and Values at the Heart of Policy Making

Why do so many government policies fail to achieve their objectives? Why are our political leaders not held to account for policy failures? Stephen Muers draws on his years of experience as a senior government policymaker, as well as global research with examples ranging from the collapse of the Soviet Union to Cold-War Germany, the election of Donald Trump and the Brexit referendum, to expose the crucial impact culture and values have on policy success and political accountability. This illuminating study sets out why policymakers need to take culture seriously, how culture and values shape the political system and presents essential practical recommendations for what governments should do differently.

Cultural Heritage and Value Creation

Towards New Pathways

Cultural Heritage and Value Creation

Informed by systems thinking, this book explores new perspectives in which culture and management are harmoniously integrated and cultural heritage is interpreted both as an essential part of the social and economic context and as an expression of community identity. The combination of a multidisciplinary approach, methodological rigor and reference to robust empirical findings in the fertile field of analysis of UNESCO’s contribution mean that the book can be considered a reference for the management of cultural heritage. It casts new light on the complex relation of culture and management, which has long occupied both scholars and practitioners and should enable the development of new pathways for value creation. The book is based on research conducted within the framework of the Consorzio Universitario di Economia Industriale e Manageriale (University Consortium for Industrial and Managerial Economics), a network of universities, businesses and public and private institutions that is dedicated to the production and dissemination of knowledge in the field. This volume will be of interest to all who are involved in the study and management of the cultural heritage.
