*Topic for the Special Section *

This special issue will bring together papers exploring the drivers of
change in the size and composition of cultural industries around the world,
such as with films, music, and television. In examining this topic from
both the national and international context, the aim here is to
specifically investigate how businesses, governments, markets, and
societies respond to the changes brought on by globalization and liberalism
(or anti-globalism and protectionism). Such forces have had a significant
impact on the way cultural contents are produced, delivered, and consumed.

Cultural industries are in a period of great change that reflect the
transformations taking place in the broader global economy. In recent years
there has been a notable shift toward anti-globalization and protectionism,
perhaps best exemplified by Brexit and the trade and investment policies of
the current US administration. Consequently, it is becoming increasingly
popular now among countries around the world to adopt protectionist
measures such as trade barriers and restrictions on investment as
highlighted by Simon Evenett. Against the backdrop of the ongoing trade
dispute between the United States and China, multinational companies have
even begun to withdraw their investments from China while the United States
has banned several goods and services from export to China.

These trends have been very evident in the cultural industries. In fact,
protectionist measures emerged in some countries much earlier, as far back
as the 1960s. Such behavior derives from the fact that governments often
regard cultural industries as a source of “soft power” and even as an
economic driver. As a result, they have put in place policies to promote or
protect their national cultural industries. Some of these approaches have
been effective; others less so. The outcome of this is that when faced with
globalization/liberalism and anti-globalism/protectionism, cultural
industries across most countries have shown a mixed range of development;
some have grown while others have declined.

Instead of being limited to social or cultural aspects, this special issue
will focus on the economic causes and effects of cultural policies and how
the business activities operate in the global cultural economy. It
encourages quantitative as well as qualitative analyses, but they should
lead to a clear policy message from a business and/or a government
perspective. This special issue will be open to approaches based on
economic and business analysis as well as on a historical approach.

Possible topics include, but are not limited:

· Effects of globalization and liberalism (or anti-globalism and
protectionism) on business, governments, markets, and societies regarding
cultural industries (trade, investment, business strategy, and social

· Impact assessment of the instruments and policies used by the
aforementioned entities in cultural industries.

· Case studies related to globalization and liberalism (or anti-globalism
and protectionism) in cultural industries.

· Comparative studies that focus on similar policies but different outcomes
across various countries.

· Any long-term perspectives may be particularly interesting if they reveal
more clearly the (positive or negative) interactions between the
instruments and policies examined.

*Description of Journal*

*Global Policy* <> is an innovative and
interdisciplinary journal bringing together world class academics and
leading practitioners to analyze both public and private solutions to
global problems and issues. It focuses on understanding globally relevant
risks and collective action problems; policy challenges that have global
impact; and competing and converging discourses about global risks and
policy responses. It also includes case studies of policy with clear
lessons for other countries and regions; how policy responses, politics and
institutions interrelate at the global level; and the conceptual,
theoretical and methodological innovations needed to explain and develop
policy in these areas.
