Abstract

This chapter aims to bring together two related concepts from political science and heritage studies: cultural contestation and contested heritage, which are the central concepts of this volume. Although these concepts are to a large degree intertwined, they have until now not been related to each other. Yet it is exactly the bringing together of these disciplines, by combining the concepts of cultural contestation and contested heritage, which are key to getting a better understanding of the role of governments in heritage practices. This chapter also gives a short overview of the contributions to the volume and of their relation to each other and to the core concepts of the book.
