The trajectory of Communitarisation, the process by which European level policies are developed and the sector's governance takes place in Brussels, varies significantly across policy sectors. European institutions have extensively intervened in the realm of audio-visual, book, copyright and cultural heritage matters, to name only those sectors where EU intervention has been the most substantial. What pertains to the field of ‘cultural policy’ often reflects political choices made by national governments. EU-level intervention in the cultural sector has essentially initiated the liberalisation of cultural industries' markets.
