The concept of cultural policy refers to the policies of diverse stakeholders aimed to regulate or affect the production and distribution of cultural goods and services. This book critically assesses the cultural policies enforced by the dominant stakeholders, national governments of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan. Through a comparative analysis of the legislations and policies adopted in these countries, this book draws a clear picture of the cultural legislations and public management of post-Soviet Central Asian region with permissive environment and semi modern demobilised societies. This book attempts to answer the question which way of life the governments of Central Asian countries promote? Which approach has been used for shaping the cultural sphere? How is the regulation and management of the cultural sphere organised? What are the main differences and similarities among these states? Overall, this book provides an innovative and original contribution to the field of cultural policy and Central Asian studies. As a result, this research may be helpful to all those students, researchers and policy-makers who have an interest in these fields of studies.
