Urban resistances have erupted in several countries, disrupting everyday life and challenging urban policies and planning. This project looks at how heritage and resistance both as concepts and as empirical realities for people on the ground are fundamentally interdependent and today constitute multiple sites of conflict. The same sites, objects, and evidence of the past are often claimed by diverse community groups in ways that make everyday life a micro dynamics of negotiating identity, recognition and sense of place. How often-contradictory positions on heritage are entangled in policies for the management of contested heritage sites will be investigated in Palestine, Turkey, and Sweden
