Heritage resource management in Mexico is a matter of great concerns as well as an appealing academic challenge. This chapter studies this concept in detail and tries to bring together different strands of this crucial topic together. Tension over heritage management in the country has led to disagreements over conceptualizations of new perspectives and the implications of these concepts in shaping academic discourse. Cultural resource management in Mexico has materialized as a concept applied to archaeological resources discriminating it from the trend of archaeology being an academic discipline. The chapter also gives space to heritage self-management among the community museums.
