The Council of Europe/ERICarts "Compendium of Cultural Policies and Trends in Europe is a web-based and permanently updated information and monitoring system of national cultural policies in Europe. It is a long term project which aims to include all 50 member states co-operating within the context of the European Cultural Convention.

The content of the Compendium cultural policy country profiles provide information on the historical development, present structure, legal framework, financial aspects and ongoing debates in cultural policies and trends. New indicators are constantly introduced to regularly monitor policy developments in Europe.

Compendium cultural policy country profiles are mainly drawn up and updated by independent cultural policy experts (i.e. "the authors"), in consultation with respective ministries. The information presented in the updated country profiles is derived from a variety of sources including research studies, governmental documents and reports by ministers and other key representatives, reports or manifestos of lobby/pressure groups, important statements from artists and cultural producers, from political campaigns, the media etc.

The Compendium is targeted to a broad audience of policy makers and administrators, arts institutions and networks, researchers and documentation professionals, journalists and students. The information and data presented online helps to inform decision-making processes, to conduct comparative policy research and analyses, to maintain data collections and to disseminate good practice examples (e.g. in the area of intercultural dialogue). Statistics regarding the average use of the Compendium show that it has become a working tool consulted on a daily basis by authorities, institutions and individuals involved in cultural policy making and research not only in Europe but world-wide.

The Danish country profile are peer reviewed by experts in relevant cultural policy bodies.
