History

The AC/52(CE) chronological series contains the documents of the Ad Hoc Meeting of Senior Officers in NATO Countries concerned with Government-Sponsored Cultural Activities.
In April 1956, the Committee on Information and Cultural Relations(1) decided to organize a conference of experts on cultural matters in the NATO countries with a view to providing fresh impetus to the cultural programme. This proposal was approved by the Council at its ministerial session in May 1956, and the meeting of senior officials took place on 10-12 July 1956. The participants concluded the discussions by recommending various actions (AC/52-D/178), some of which had already been initiated (e.g.: study/research fellowships; summer courses) with the others remaining to be designed or set up (e.g.: translation of Soviet scientific publications; extension of exchanges to the heads of union groups and youth movements; meeting of an Atlantic Round Table, etc). In September 1956, all of these proposals were reviewed by the Committee, with the goal being to consider how to act on them (AC/52-R/60 and AC/52 R/61).
This conference was a one-time event, as had been originally decided. It led to the implementation of new actions.
