Project Description

This project is the first comparative international study to explore the historical and contemporary relationships between government and the popular music industries. It aims to produce a detailed examination of both the formation and effects of popular music policy in Australia, Scotland and New Zealand, culminating in a monograph of international standing designed to substantially inform policy debates within the Anglophone music world. The project will contribute to new ways of understanding national policy agendas and their role in the construction of viable career paths for musicians, composers and other industry workers.
