The Finnish Reply to the Inquiry Concerning the Role of the State in the National and International Cultural Development

In August 1994 the Swedish National Council for Cultural Affairs organised the Arts Baltica seminar "The Cultural Responsibility of the State", with participation of senior officials from the Ministries of Culture in the Baltic Sea States, from the Council of Europe, and from the Swedish National Commission for UNESCO. As a preparation for the seminar the participating countries were asked to describe the national situations through answering five questions within a maximum of about 10 pages. This working paper presents the reply of Finland to the questionnaire.
