  • Key questions of the ARIS book series focus on (these are clearly indicative and not all-inclusive or exclusive of additional issues, themes, and questions that may arise in the context of the ARIS theory, policy and practice discourse):

    What is the impact of the Arts in societal development?

    How are the Arts interrelated with the mechanisms of generating social, scientific and economic innovation? What is, could be and should be the nature, dynamics and role of the Arts in shaping the Research and Innovation theories, policies and practices such as the New Growth Theory, Horizon 2020?

    In the same context, what could and should be new understanding of the support for funding of the Arts as a stand-alone pillar with its own merit, value and potential along with Research and Innovation of smart, sustainable and inclusive growth that is socially-embedded and cohesive development and progress?

    What are the socio-economic, socio-political, socio-technical implications for Society from the answers to any and all of these questions?
    • For instance, what are the particular implications for sectors such as Politics, Education, Health, Manufacturing and others?
    • How can the New Growth Theory be understood in the context of Creative Economies, Societies and Democracies?
    • Are there limits to growth in the traditional economy and what is the role of artistic research and arts-based innovations in re-defining growth, development and progress?
    • What are the role, inter-dependencies and dynamics of Arts vs. Research vs. Innovation vs. Society as catalysts, drivers and accelerators of smart, sustainable and inclusive growth?
    • What is the relationship of Arts to "quality of democracy" in theory and practice?
