Det er ikke ofte i mitt virke at jeg møter kulturaksjonister som går inn i det politiske systemet,  slik Bobi Wine har gjort med sin plass i parlamentet. Vanligvis står de utenfor, og ser politikken som den affæren Bobi Wine nå har fått oppleve innenifra. Kulturaksjonistene er massivt tilstede i samfunnet, hvor de arbeider for demokratisering av både kunsten og det politiske systemet. Den arabiske våren i 2011 er det store eksempelet på gruppens mobiliseringskraft.  I Uganda foregår en lignende mobilisering akkurat nå.  Spørsmålet her er altså om presidenten stopper musikken eller musikken stopper ham.

"Research: To Strengthen Culture of Knowledge programme seeks to encourage Syrian researchers in Syria and abroad to prepare objective research papers that are committed to the principles of scientific research in terms of their design, documentation and editing when covering all matters relating to the Syrian issue. Ettijahat's team is keeping track of the researchers' work at all stages and helps them complete their work to meet the publishing requirements. The programme is proud that it has allowed over the past five years a rare opportunity for dozens of male and female researchers to receive the needed training, which has yielded research papers that enrich our knowledge of Syrian society, its cultural heritage and living culture."
Mr. Farouk Mardam Bey, member of the SC panel under the programme's fifth edition.
