In recent decades, "post-conflict development" has become a catch-all phrase used to refer to an imagined and idealized transitional process which takes a "recently at war" non-self-sustainable state to self-sustainable status. Within this broadly conceived agenda, "culture" and "heritage" have become central concerns. Using illustrative case study material - drawn from the Rwandan genocide, South African apartheid, Japanese and American memorialisation of the ending of WWII, the Balkans, and conflicts in Northern Ireland and Cambodia - this volume deconstructs the post-conflict heritage developmental discourse, and explores the various ways in which heritage is used in post-conflict contexts alongside historical perspectives on the potential consequences of post-conflict heritage engagement.
