« Cultures for change, changes through Culture»

The theme of this 6th Euro Mediterranean Dialogue is the place and role of culture as a fertilizer for change, and focuses on the use of culture in shaping change processes

The first meaning of the word culture, in the true sense of the term, is built on historical roots, shared values, on common modes of expression. The other meaning is that of cultural activities that need to be addressed even in its most recent developments.

Our contemporary Mediterranean area has never been so shaken in recent years by the willingness of people to have access to more democracy. If one is interested in the notion of public space as a guarantor of a certain continuity, particularly in its relationship to citizens-users, it is clear that the big issue is that of change, change that should enable governments to work on the basis of equity, ethics, to make the decision-making process more clear, to reach out to people for them to participate in public life.

Management sciences have largely addressed the issue of organisational change. It now appears useful to see how the works that have been developed can be used for reflection about the changes in society. These processes of change that must accompany the democratic ambition have to incorporate new public policies to respond to key issues raised by the economic crisis, those of youth and employment, those of economic development driven by innovation and creativity.

These developments lead us to call for papers along the following four axes of reflection: Reflections on the place and role of culture in organisational change, in the economic and societal changes of a territory, and in the political and democratic changes. This requires also questioning the evolution of culture and the cultural sector, as well as the role of vocational and education training.

slide4

5 axis of development

Axis 1 – Culture and organisational change

Within this axis, we question the links between organisational cultures, national cultures, and changes in the public sectors around the Mediterranean.

The administration as first instrument of stability but also of transformation of our societies interests us in the first place. Many waves of modernisation and reform, as well as research on administrative systems since the '50s, show that organisational culture is both a factor of stability and change. The Bureaucratic organisation, in particular, gives rise to systems of shared conservative values ​​and beliefs which stabilise behaviours and legitimise control systems, standards and administrative operations.

On the other hand, we find that the substantive transformations of worldviews, values ​​and shared beliefs, driven by the long-term trends of generational renewal as well as the ease of exchanges offered by the new communication media, make culture the backdrop and trigger of new organisational dynamics, both administrative and political.

This raises the question of transfers between organisational culture and societal culture, but also the likelihood of "cultural change" imposed by policymakers and administration. Can we speak today of a competition of value systems at the societal and administrative level? Under what conditions this turmoil may lead to the emergence of new conservative attitudes or, conversely, to a fertile process of cultural questioning and modernisation? Are there organisational cultures favourable to change? Finally, how to harness the interdependencies between management systems (monitoring, wages, evaluation, and piloting) and culture to apply the required administrative changes?

Axis 2 – Cultures, territory and economical and societal changes

This axis aims to examine the role of culture, in its two senses, in economic dynamism, but also to go beyond this dimension to address the territorial issue at the service of its population’s well-being and quality of life. The questions are twofold.

On the economic point of view, what is the added value created by the development of cultural activities and what impact on employment? What are the consequences on territorial planning, on transport?

From a societal perspective, the aim is to examine the role of culture in the construction of an image at the service of a territory, of a territory’s attractiveness in terms of quality of life, of the mobilisation of stakeholders, on solidarity, on the hospitality and the living-together factor...

slide5

5 axis of development

Axis 3 – Culture, Political and Democratic Changes

This axis calls for papers on the role of culture and interculturality in democratic change and international cooperation. It questions the Mediterranean, events that have shaken and are still shaking the Arab world, and the limits of the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership.

The questionings relate to the changes in the Arab world and the relationship between culture and tolerance: how can cultural activities promote the learning of cultural plurality in the Mediterranean? What is the role of the cultural sector in improving the quality of life of the Mediterranean people? What responsibility for Culture vis-à-vis the youth who aspire to a better life? Has Culture been questioned in the great movements of the Arab Spring?

This axis also invites to consider the failures of Euro-Mediterranean Partnership, the necessary involvement of civil society in national development strategies, instead of Intercultural Dialogue in cooperation actions.

Axis 4 – Cultural Activities, evolution and change

This axis focuses on the evolution of traditional cultural activities: performing arts, visual arts, literature, music, and museums ... but also on the major cultural and creative industries strongly shaken up by the arrival of ICT’s (press, publishing, music, audiovisual industries, but also the fashion, design and tourism industries ...). What might be called the "new paradigm of creative industries" which appeared in the 1990s in academic and political discourse, does it allows us to identify a "new economy of culture" as part of a sustainable territorial development?

This axis leads to several questions:

What are the new forms of organisation, structure, assessment and financing of cultural activities?

What is the role of new technologies in the development of culture? This involves questioning, for example, new communication tools for the benefit of cultural organisations and events, the role of information systems or social networks, the new means of distribution and access to culture (with examples such as virtual museums) ...

What is the role of culture in sustainable tourism development policies? How should one incorporate the heritage dimension and local cultures?

slide6

5 axis of development

Axis 5: Vocational education and training facing the challenges of Employability and Culture?

Employability and training in the cultural sectors 

Taking into account the improvement of employability through education and basic training, how do we take into account the real needs to meet the current and future challenges of the labour market? How do we define the basic requirements for training?

To answer this question, it is necessary to consider the contribution of education and training to the professionalisation of the culture businesses (events management companies, museums, infrastructure ...)? How to train for careers in culture, heritage and tourism? Are the sectors of tourism and culture lacking of specific training?

It is also interesting to understand the culture sector as a labour market and analyse their employability in the Mediterranean. What are the requirements for employment in this sector? What kind of opportunity the development of culture and cultural policies has to offer in terms of job creation?

2. Culture as Enrichment of Education and Training

The role of culture in the change process also needs to reflect on how the learning of culture is integrated into trainings.

Is there a way to improve employability by learning interculturality and cultural practices? Particularly in areas of innovation and creativity.

Can culture be a basis for the definition of essential skills to facilitate the transition from school to working life and to support learning throughout life?

Core competencies to define the needs of professional training and teachers’ expertise (knowledge of languages, history and culture as basic knowledge, cultural diversity, etc.) can also be a focus point. How should education and training policy be adapted?

3. Training and its Cultural Characteristics

Change of culture in education and basic training should respond to a change of culture in economy and society, and should contribute to cultural change in the economy and society:

-need to provide education and training in line with the creation of new types of jobs

-the need to develop new vectors of communication: new technologies, social media, etc.

-the need for an environment that leads to culture change: entrepreneurship, innovation, creativity...

-education and training should be explicitly linked to evolving professionals

Culture is part of the economy, and education and basic training should seize the opportunity to include cultural entrepreneurship, craftsmanship, partnerships,

This axis also questions the interaction effects of culture on vocational training in the Mediterranean region.

Is good training universal? Should training be adapted to the cultural context? What about policies for vocational education and training
