‘A vital contribution to the literature on culture for development. This book combines a critical examination of the discursive claims concerning the contribution of heritage to sustainable development goals with evaluation of projects on the ground using multi-scalar and interdisciplinary methods. Labadi’s chapters address multidirectional power relations and issues of local resistance, the politicised uses of heritage by local stakeholders, which frustrate its instrumentalization as a tool of social transformation promoted by international actors, as well as critique of Western distinctions between culture and nature, which have led to environmental and social justice crises alike.’ – Paul Basu, University of Bonn
