State management in cultural policy of Russia

The report suggests the debate about the cultural policy in Russia. During the transition to a market economy in Russian Federation culture has suffered significant changes. The cultural policy can no longer be treated as the prerogative of government. Modern cultural policy is an area of interaction between different actors, which are formed through the efforts of the strategy of real action in the field of culture. The latest changes require creating new concepts and mechanisms of implementation of social policy including development of methodology of cultural policy research, conceptualizing mechanisms for conservation and development of the cultural heritage of the country and ensuring the continuity of the development of Russian culture, along with support for the diversity of cultural life and cultural innovations.
