Abstract: this article identifies how different government instruments are used in the implementation of the national policy for museums and how they relate to the governmental goal of democratizing access. the first part defines the term government instruments, exposing its theoretical framework. the national policy for museums is described and its instruments are identified. the second part explains the methodology used for a comparative analysis, and describes the selected variables: incentives, autonomy, information, and complexity. the third part develops the comparative analysis of three instruments: direct management, tax waver, and financial assistance. the results suggest that the instrument financial assistance has a better ability to democratize access. the conclusion suggests proposals to be tested in future research: the tax waiver instrument, being based on the market, strengths the market concentration; direct management has limited effects, circumscribed to places where there is the presence of the state, with limited power to de-concentrate; and financial assistance instrument is the best instrument to democratize opportunities to access museums.

Abstract: Resumo ----- Este artigo identifica como diferentes instrumentos governamentais s o utilizados na implementa o da Política Nacional de Museus e como se relacionam com o objetivo governamental de democratiza o do acesso. Os resultados sugerem que o instrumento de assistência financeira apresenta maior capacidade de democratiza o do acesso, bem como trazem proposi es a serem testadas em pesquisas futuras: o instrumento renúncia fiscal, por ser baseado no mercado, refor a a concentra o do mercado; o instrumento gest o direta tem seus efeitos limitados aos locais onde há presen a do Estado, portanto com limitado poder de desconcentra o; e o instrumento assistência financeira é o que apresenta indícios de poder melhor democratizar as oportunidades de acesso. ----- Government Instruments in the Implementation of the National Policy for Museums ----- Abstract ----- This article identi es how different government instruments are used in the implementation of the National Policy for Museums and how they relate to the governmental goal of democratizing access.

Accessibility to university museums: A strategical objective
Edmon Castell
University Museums and Collections Journal , 2009,
Abstract: In the National University of Colombia there are currently 25 museums and collections including art, medicine, natural science, anthropology and history. Taken together, they comprise the largest, most diverse and most important museum in Colombia, and also the least known. The collections are the product of the conservation and research work of the university in the 141 years of its existence. In recent years, the National University of Colombia has not only become more aware of the importance of its cultural and scientific heritage, but also of the marginality of the work in the university museums. For that reason, in 2006 the university began to work on a Museums and Cultural Heritage Project to develop policies for the conservation, acquisition, documentation, research and communication of its own cultural heritage. The National University of Colombia hopes, through the development of a stronger, structured, ethical, responsible, efficient and representative project about Museums and Cultural Heritage to be better prepared for current challenges. In addition, the project hopes to generate a new landscape of accessibility to the museums and collections of the National University of Colombia. In short, the Museums and Cultural Heritage System of the National University of Colombia, through a ‘Museums portal’ located in a colonial building in Bogotá known as Claustro de San Agustín (Cloister of St. Augustine) seeks to highlight the cultural heritage of the university, and become, beyond the classrooms and research centers of the campus, an important reference for the meeting of teachers, students, citizens and other cultural and academic institutions.
Using Different Pasts in a Similar Way Museum Representations of National History in Norway and China
Marzia Varutti
Culture Unbound : Journal of Current Cultural Research , 2010,
Abstract: This article explores how national histories are constructed in the museums of Norway. It does so through a comparative perspective, whereby museum displays of national past in Norway are being compared to museum displays of national past in the People’s Republic of China. This will involve comparing narratives, museological approaches, rationale and purposes of museum displays in the two countries. Fieldwork research in museums in Norway and China suggests that if national pasts are obviously unique to the historical trajectories of each country, their museum renditions are structured in an intriguingly similar way. Museum displays of national pasts in Norway develop around a set of themes including myths of ancestry and descent; epics of resistance leading the embryonic nation through a dark era and towards a “Golden Age”; a core of moral and aesthetic values; notions of national modernity; and selective amnesia. I will show how similar topics can be found in museum displays of the past in Chinese museums. The comparative perspective of the analysis enables me to assess the uniqueness of museum representations of the past in Norway and at the same time to explore analogies in the museum construction of national narratives beyond the European context, through the case study of China. This will lead me to put forward the hypothesis of the coagulation, at international level, of a canon for the museum representation of national history.
Support for obesity policy: The effect of perceptions of causes for obesity and national identity in Canada  [PDF]
Ryan Lange, Guy Faulkner
Open Journal of Preventive Medicine (OJPM) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ojpm.2012.24067
Abstract: Interventions in Canada to address obesity have largely been limited to individual-level change through education rather than a population-level public policy approach. Little is known about obesity policy support in Canada, and substantial national variation in obesity policy support prevents direct transferability of these policies among nations. Our study recruited 521 young adults for an online survey through leaflets and flyers. We investigated how respondents’ demographics, health characteristics, political attitudes, beliefs regarding causes of obesity, and national identity affected their support for obesity policy. Results showed that there is high support for many obesity policies among Canadian young adults. Including Canadian national identity in regression models was significant in explaining obesity policy support beyond the combined effect of other predictors. Further exploration of national identity, in Canada and elsewhere, has implications for understanding obesity policy support that might assist policy makers in making more informed decisions in addressing obesity.

Hernández Salazar,Giovanni Andrés; Olaya Pardo,Ana María;
Ensayos sobre POLíTICA ECONóMICA , 2010,
Abstract: in an effort to encourage visits to museums, the colombian government created the act 580 of 2000, which established free entry to museums between july 15 and august 15. this act increased the demand from users during this period, but had a negative impact on revenues. to resolve this situation, the act 929 of 2004 was enacted to establish free entrance to museums on the last sunday of every month. this paper investigates the impact of the act 929 on ticketing revenues and on the number of visitors to four museums in bogotá. we built a database of visitors and revenues for the 2001-2008 period and estimated univariate arima models of intervention. we conclude that this act had a positive impact, improving ticketing revenues in all museums, but did not modify the demand behavior of visitors.

A Review on the Policy and Practices of Therapeutic Drug Uses in Bangladesh
Islam MS
Calicut Medical Journal , 2006,
Abstract: Despite substantial progress in drug manufacturing,irrational drug use, inappropriate prescribing, inadequateaccess to essential drugs, and uncontrolled price are majorproblems affecting the total health care system badly ofBangladesh. This project is based on reviewing relatedliteratures, newspapers articles and online searches usingPubmed and Google. Combinations of key words related toeach of the subject areas were used. Websites of relevantinstitutions, government and non-government organisationswere also searched. The obtained literatures werecategorized and reviewed carefully. Most of the medicationsare prescribed inappropriately and polypharmacy is verycommon. Antibiotics are often prescribed irrationallywithout standard guidelines. Virtually, all the drugs areavailable without prescriptions and self-medications arehighly common. Access to essential medicines issignificantly less than that mentioned in the officialdocuments. Price of essential medicines is not consistentand the drugs regulating authority does not have any controlover pricing of drugs. Counterfeit medicines have delugedBangladesh market with an estimated worth of US$100-US$150. Smaller drug manufacturers are engaged in theproduction substandard or fake drugs. Information onmonitoring and reporting of adverse drug reactions (ADR)of the marketed drugs were not available. Management andutilisations of therapeutic drugs in Bangladesh is extremelyvulnerable. The drug controlling authority should be morevigilant to ensure appropriate use and availability ofmedicines. Advanced studies are required to assess drug usepatterns in the country.
