dc.description.abstractTerry Flew's account (in this volume) of the new era in cultural policy reminds us of the need to look beyond policy statements and speeches. Despite the consequences of the Mansfield and Gonski Reports for Radio Australia and the Australian Film Commission's screen culture program, Flew finds that no substantial institutional changes have so far followed from the Coalition's retreat from Keatingism in the Communications and Arts portfolio. We need also to compare the new government's declared policy directions with its handling of regulatory issues in the cultural sphere. Regulation continues to have a somewhat obscure place in cultural policy discussion. Those legal and bureaucratic structures which seek to manage cultural industries 􀇍 for example, the classification and censorship system, the laws and practices developed around copyright, and the controls exercised by government over broadcasting and communications - are often passed over in discussions of cultural policy which concentrate on budget expenditure and subsidies for the arts. Nevertheless, these regulatory systems do embody policy objectives. And precisely because they are rarely - if at all - costed, they call for greater scrutiny. In this discussion, I consider some current issues of censorship.en_US
