Rediscovering Lo Local

The Potential and the Limits of Local Development in Havana

(p.90) 4 Rediscovering Lo Local
The Changing Dynamic of Cuban Civil Society


University Press of Florida

This chapter examines the limits and potential of local development in Havana, Cuba. It discusses the launch of so-called neighborhood movements which sought to address local problems resulting from the economic hardships of the Special Period and the difficulties the state encountered in addressing local problems at that time. These movements were successful in introducing a different practice at the local level which stepped away from both the highly centralized planning approaches and the massive mobilization practice that had prevailed.

Keywords:   local development, Havana, Cuba, neighborhood movement, Special Period, centralized planning, mobilization practice
