Governance Matters for the Conservation of the Urban Heritage: The Case of Four World Heritage Sites in Latin America
H. Eduardo Rojas
The thesis discusses the governance of the urban heritage conservation process, specifically the factors that frame the conservation decisions and the allocation of resources. Based on an original analytical framework studies the decision-making process leading to the listing and conservation of urban heritage areas and tests the framework analyzing four cases of urban heritage preservation in Latin America: Oaxaca (Mexico), Quito (Ecuador), Salvador de Bahia (Brazil) and Valparaiso (Chile). The thesis concludes that the sustainable conservation of urban heritage areas requires: that their extensive range of socio-cultural and economic values be appreciated by a wide spectrum of social actors; that they must actively participate in the effort becoming committed stakeholders, and; achieving a delicate balance between conservation and development.
