Abstract and Keywords

Cities confront complex choices in managing rapid growth, including whether to protect their material heritage or let new development take its place. These topics are not well researched and call for a more systematic treatment. Governance-focused studies bring to the attention of conservators and city managers the institutional, regulatory, and financial underpinnings of the urban heritage conservation process that are not commonly discussed when listing monuments and heritage areas or when establishing rules and regulations for their conservation. This approach to the analysis of urban heritage conservation helps cultural institutions and city governments to identify the variety of social actors holding an interest in the urban heritage, better understand their interactions and conflicts, implement more effective institutional arrangements and regulations, and increase and better allocate financial resources to conserve the heritage.

Keywords: historic preservation, urban development, governance, Latin America, stakeholders, institutions, regulations, finance
