SERRANO-VIA, Yura  y  VIZUETE-SANDOVAL, Daniel Alejandro. The (im)possibility of heritage: between social conflict and the place of the state. Universitas [online]. 2020, n.33, pp.19-38. ISSN 1390-8634.

Approaching heritage governance involves an exercise in deep understanding of the dimensions involved there: the distribution of power, cultural practices, the economic dimension, social imaginaries and others. In this work we seek to respond what factors enable the democratic governance of sites with heritage declarations? From the application of the bibliographic review and field visits, information was collected that, from a qualitative strategy that combines structured observation and interviews, allowed to analyze the particularities and common experiences in two cases of archaeological heritage management in Ecuador: Ingapirca and Cerro de Hojas-Jaboncillo. The processing of social conflict, institutional trajectories and heritage appropriation processes are elements that lead to the findings of this work. The inquiry strategy involved designing a methodological tool and its application on the two mentioned sites to 30 local informants from different social groups.
