We are excited to present the first edition of the Culture Impact Journal. The publishers aim at showing how culture is impacting societal and political policies. We believe that culture is underestimated as a driver for the behavior we see around us. National culture acts like a gravitational field that socializes individuals towards the nation’s central value tendencies. This gravitation influences all major policy subjects. Examples: economy, education, democracy, the preferred approach for climate change, the dominant approach to Art, approaches to international cooperation, and diplomacy, etc.. The platform we create on this website will focus mainly on cultural diversity’s societal and political consequences. One of the means we use to do so is the Culture Impact Journal with “special editions”.

Four subjects are already in the pipeline for the “specials” in 2022:

February:         “Culture and Identity,”

June:                “Culture and Nation-building,”

September:      “Culture and Sports”,

December:       “Culture and Education”.

The content of this special is presented in two ways:

  1. Compact access. A description of the content for each paper and a PDF file for the article concerned.
  2. All articles in Journal format.

Compact Version

Short description
