Abstract [en]

This paper explores civil-society mobilisations around the Preah Vihear Temple,today a world heritage site located in Cambodia, on the border with Thailand.More specifically, the paper seeks to increase our understanding of the‘peace-building’resistance that is played out by different civil-society actorswith regard to the Temple. This case displays how both the governments andcivil societies in each of the two countries bend relationships between the‘past’, the‘present’, and the‘future’in general, and in relation to‘identity’inparticular, in order to construct narratives of nation-building. The Temple hasbeen used in discursive constructions of national collective identity inCambodia and Thailand, respectively; constructions that, among other things,embrace shifting notions of time and temporality. Whereas much analysis ofpeace-building resistance concentrates on larger-scale actions, this paper addsto previous research by giving priority to more subtle forms of resistance anddescribing how civil-society actors resist by‘bending’prevailing conceptionsof time and temporality.
