Place as Heritage: Participation and Dialogue in Practice This paper summarizes findings from the research project Landscapes of Participation: Negotiations and contestations in cultural resource management. The project combined disciplines from business administration, human ecology and social anthropology in an inquiry into how public participation was put in practice in three different cases studies in Sweden and South Africa. One case concerned the proposed remaking of a shutdown nuclear power plant into a site of national heritage, another dealt with the debated future of a former steam ferry station and the third a case of land restitution to individuals who were evicted from their neighborhood during Apartheid. All three cases involved sites or buildings subject to intense debate and contestation regarding their meaning and use. Through fieldwork, interviews and collaborative photography the project investigated how various stakeholders, in particular local residents, experienced their possibilities for participation in decisions regarding these places. Findings show that the outcome of participatory processed depended on contextual factors such as social, cultural and temporal dimensions of the places under negotiation.
