Living with Heritage in Cairo

The book's findings indicate the advisability of a broad perspective to reconcile the different claims and needs of the “U,” “N,” and “W” interest groups within each historic area in Cairo. The main goal would be to construct an effective and comprehensive approach to area conservation that respects the special environmental qualities and cultural values of Arab-Islamic cities as a model to assess current revitalization schemes in Historic Cairo. The different concerns of the U/N/W groups refer to tangible “values of states” and also to intangible “values of processes.” Their different priorities determine the value of each historic area. The historic areas in Egypt are perceived by officials and influential people as manifestations of physical heritage and opportunities for investment in tourism.

Keywords:   U group, N group, W group, values of states, values of processes, physical heritage
