The Compendium of Cultural Policies and Trends, an information and monitoring system that stores and updates content on national cultural policies from 45 different countries, launches its new online platform based on the pilot methodological structure initially formulated and organized in Spain by the independent expert, Anna Villaroya.

This new online platform, developed by web designers Daphne van Loonm Ron North and Ton de Koning in collaboration with Compendium expert authors and other interested parties, offers improvements in the navigation and search system through the use of customizable filters and new databases that make it easier to compare cultural policy issues. The platform will also provide revised resources, statistical tables and comparisons based on country profiles and external sources.
