In this paper, author present an overview of scientific concepts in the field of political decision-making, the formation of a policy and the specific features of cultural policy. The study focuses on the specifics of the development and implementation of cultural policies in the European Union. Based on the analysis of the dynamics of the number and budget of cultural projects financed by the European Union from 2000 to 2018 and based on the methodology of the "grounded theory", we identified the following factors that cause a change in the political course of the EU cultural policy: "integration", "immigration", "economic "," Educational "; as well as factors that determine the stability of the course - "globalization" and "liberal-humanistic". A qualitative comparative analysis of the cultural policies of six EU member states (France, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Spain, the Netherlands) was conducted. The result of this analysis was the identification of 2 strategies leading to a "change in the course": 1. The totality of the impact of the "integration", "immigration" and "educational" factors; 2. The impact of only the "economic" factor. In addition, the study details the problems of the current system of monitoring and monitoring of cultural projects in the EU, and proposed the own monitoring system to increase the level of transparency.
