The Dimensions of Empowerment.
This paper is designed as a guide to the study of empowerment in the neighborhood movement for historic preservation in New Orleans' French Quarter. For this case study, whose initial focus in on a relatively affluent sector of the population, culture and identity become prominent. However, the review adopts a broader focus to ensure its pertinence to more varied population groups, including those less privileged. Thus, although in the specific case study, initial research indicates the relevance of cultural aspects derived from the emergence of alternative visions of urban life, the discussion of political and economic empowerment remain crucial.
