Cultural resources as a development asset
2007 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
On a premise that cultural heritage preservation is a tool for urban development and poverty alleviation with civil society as a potential partner, the aim of the study is to contribute to deeper knowledge on how civil society may perform in response to the threat of loss of cultural heritage value and adequate living environment in historic areas when central and local government is incapacitated – a situation worsened by current political situation. The research objectives - through an exploratory, descriptive and explanatory methodological approach involving a local case study – are to produce results anticipated to enable a normative discussion on how to capacitate civil society represented by individuals and civic institutions to efficiently prevent and improve their cultural heritage value and use it as a development asset.
