This research project examines the main stakeholders (the state, municipalities/ communities and individuals), types of museums (archaeological, art, ethnographic etc.) they establish and the forces influencing their decisions (such as politics, a sense of national identity, cultural tourism, economic revitalization and personal agendas) in order to map the Cypriot museum environment. It also identifies cultural sustainability strengths and gaps on a national level in order to make it easier for cultural policy makers to design appropriate cultural policies for museums.
The results of the study is published by the International Journal of Cultural Policy [Stylianou-Lambert, T., Boukas, N. Yerali-Christodoulou M. (2014). Museums and Cultural Sustainability: Stakeholders, Forces and Cultural Policies. International Journal of Cultural Policy]
