Cultural Policy and Management Research Center (KPY) established by Istanbul Bilgi University (BİLGİ) in 2010 is one of the first research centers to conduct studies within the field of cultural policy and cultural management in Turkey. Founded in 2008, the Cultural Policy and Management Yearbook is an academic/professional journal addressing cultural policy and cultural management issues. The goal of the Yearbook is to promote a new understanding towards cultural policy issues in Turkey, paying more attention to more inclusive and participatory approaches which take cultural diversity of the country into account.
