Example text

As Griffiths writes, ‘defence of sovereignty comes down to our ability to nourish the processes that hold us together as a people with purposes and a destiny of our own. ’68 Griffiths clearly draws upon the themes discussed in the previous sections on identity and unity. However, he builds on these to argue for the importance of having a defence policy that includes expenditures for cultural policy in the order of current spending on military security. 69 ‘Good’ policy, in this context, is that which supports culture as a means to the preservation of state sovereignty.

55 In this context, he shows how the ideas of romantic nationalism, including the connection between culture and nation, have underlain many cultural policies. 56 In this sense, Smith argues that a culturally interventionist policy is essential for the development of national identity. Since Smith places a high value on national identity for the good life of the community, then this cultural policy provides an example of ‘good’ policy. Ostry, too, has a very definite understanding of the relationship between culture and national identity.

Conception of culture There is little disagreement within community-based approaches about the definition of culture to be applied. Proponents of community-based approaches do not deny the validity of the market-based understanding of culture as an industry. However, for community-based approaches, this is only one of several aspects of culture. All community-based approaches also see culture as an artistic process, while many go even further, understanding culture as the way of life of a people.
