Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

1 Citation (Scopus)


The intervention that is taking place in Mouraria falls into urban revitalization policies targeting territories in the inner city and relating the requalification of public space to socio-economic development as well as cultural promotion in order to attract new audiences, namely tourists. It intends to redefine the strong symbolic load of these places in order to help to position the city on the international scene as a destination to visit. These transformations involve different actors and various strategies and in this sense, the line of research aims to understand the position that the different local groups adopt as well as which conflicts and alliances are formed in the urban space marked by a tangle of distinct dynamics.
