  • the connection between the creative industries and economic development - how the creative  conomy can potentially offer alternatives, not only to governments facing recurring economic  hallenges, but also to the countless marginalised citizens and creators of the Commonwealth;
  • the role of a new and important UNESCO Convention in providing a framework for countries,  articularly those with limited government capacity, to implement successful cultural policy designed to support creative production and enhance cultural diversity;
  • what using culture in development might mean for development organisations;
  • why development practitioners should do more than take culture into account - how can power over development processes be transferred to local people and communities, but a rejection of change, transformation and development be avoided?
  • the importance of cultural expression in resolving insecurities and conflicts associated with issues of identity;
  • how cultural expression is not only important in building the ‘good society’ in periods of relative stability and democracy, but also during situations of crisis and repression, when civil society can also draw on creative resources to act as agents of social change;
  • a human rights framework - using the language of rights is not only an interesting and fruitful  approach to follow, but also that such an approach addresses claims and aspirations to power, in a way that other analyses may not.
