December 26, 2013 Questionnaire on Administrative and Legal Framework Conditions for the Culture Sector Dear Colleagues,
Through the following questionnaire the RMCBU is collecting information about the framework administrative and legal working conditions for culture sector actors in the six EaP countries. A lot is being talked about policies and strategies but seldom enough the focus is on the administrative and legal working conditions. We know from many colleagues how they often have to struggle with administration and legal procedure but there is a lack of data regarding such issues. By identifying with your help which main issues, once solved, would substantially improve the working conditions for culture actors, we want to create the factual basis for an open and public exchange on these working conditions and for lobbying authorities with solutions and improvements.
We will appreciate if you spend some of your time to fill your answers in to the section with the legal status that best corresponds to your/your organisations situation.
