The Centre for Policy Studies on Culture and Communities promotes teaching, research, and public outreach on cultural politics, policy and planning in communities from the local to the global. Our concern is with how these support the cultural practices and ways of life in communities that contribute to sustainability and to an inclusive society.

The Centre promotes studies of policy not restricted to governments or public administration, but addressing the interaction of networks of voluntary, not for profit, neighbourhood and virtual- community citizen-based initiatives as well as all levels of government, private foundations, and knowledge creators and disseminators.
