Chapter Summary

The protective and expanding functions of Article 151(4) EC, materialised through the pursuance of cultural policy goals in the context of other Community policies, are substantially weakened by the provision's overly delicate wording, which does not create a clear legal obligation for compliance throughout the entire sphere of Community activity. The margin of discretion left to the European institutions has resulted in limited and rather dispersed cultural mainstreaming efforts. Arguing for increased integration of cultural considerations in overall Community action presupposes a profound appraisal of EC policy structures and procedures. Strengthening the cultural dimension of EC policy design and implementation must not lead to abandonment of specific activities targeting the cultural sector. The delivery of culture-sensitive policies on the ground, not solely a matter for the Community institutions to grapple with, necessitates the adoption of appropriate domestic implementing and follow-up measures.

Keywords:Article 151(4) EC; Community policies; EC policy; European institutions
