This chapter sheds light on the nature of the two different ‘conceptions’ of culture that were held by competing stakeholders in the decision-making process. Culture is the field ‘par excellence’ where policy preferences are not only determined by institutional, political and economic interests, but also by policy ideas. The chapter shows how policy ideas had an impact on the selection of policy models available in the cultural sector at the national level, thus acting as the very shapers of policy actors' preferences, and the extent to which policy ideas were also acting as a weapon in actors' interest maximising strategies.
