Региональная культурная политика: государственные обязанности в сфере культуры в региональном законодательстве

Куштанина Е. В.
The paper focuses on the issues of state responsibilities, entailing financial commitments, in cultural sector as they enshrined in the legislations of the subjects of the Russian Federation. It is based on the study of the legal frameworks of 85 regions of the Russian Federation, including the analysis of open access documents published by 1 February, 2016, using the data from reference legal system ConsultantPlus (regional legislation) and the official web-sites of local governments of the Russian Federation. The paper identifies and examines statutory duties of the Russian Federation subjects in cultural sector: general responsibilities, responsibilities for the sub-sectors (museums, libraries, cultural and leisure activities, performing arts, cinema, cultural heritage), responsibilities to support artists and creative activities, as well as financial and material aspects of regional cultural legislation. The analysis reveals common problems of the current regional legislation with the serious gaps in the account of the statutory duties. The paper identifies specific approaches to solve them in some regions of the Russian Federation, including those which have no analogues at the federal level. The development of these approaches can be used to improve federal and regional legislation in cultural sector.
