|Description||This report has a double purpose. Firstly, it seeks to identify the factors that led the rising diversity and increasing gender equality in European societies in recent times. Secondly, it aims to analyze how these factors impact on the shaping of values of culture in three specific areas: institutionalized culture, cultural administrations and cultural policies, and citizen culture. The report analyzes the factors that contribute to the growth of diversity and gender equity, taking into account short- and long-term socio historical factors and the related social movements. In the second part, it is pointed out, on the one hand, how these factors transform the values of culture, making difference emerge as a positive value in society. On the other hand, it is showed how the positive value of difference becomes part of the arena of institutionalized culture, cultural administrations and cultural policies, and citizen culture. In this regard, firstly, we make reference to the growth of tolerance and respect towards ethnic, cultural, linguistic, religious and sexual orientation differences as emerging social values. Secondly, we identify the trend towards an increased diversity of artistic and cultural contents and repertoires from different origins and their legitimization in consecrated spaces (such as museums, festivals, biennials, etc.). Finally, the report points out how the positive value of diversity is reflected in the different configurations of cultural administration and in the orientations of cultural policies in a significant sample of European countries, representative of the different existing diversity profiles: UK, France, Germany, Spain and Bulgaria.
