Abstract [en]

Jerusalem is one of the main features of the Israel-Palestine conflict and as such part of a narrative battle. There is no common and accepted truth about the history, the everyday life, the administration, or the future of the city. The identity politics of Jerusalem contains a number of narratives and one main characteristic is that they are based on so called commemorations that play a large role in the construction of Jerusalem. The commemorative narratives are used and produced in order to state a claim. This paper will focus on the narratives regarding territory and more specifically how these narratives affect administrative processes in a contested city. These collective memories are created in schools, in the military system, by politicians, by authors, etc., through acts of commemoration. Commemorative narratives could be connected to a larger framework – a so-called master commemorative narrative. This master narrative gives a wider picture of the collective memory. Memories and narratives are rarely undisputed. Where we find memories we also find counter-memories and counter-narratives causing a narrative battle and in the case of Jerusalem these narratives have the capacity to ignite the conflict. It is therefore necessary to better understand the role of these narratives within a conflict and within specific administrative processes. The aim of this paper is twofold; 1.) to distinguish the commemorative narratives of Jerusalem in political speeches, statements and similar, and what role they play in city planning policies and processes, and 2.) to discuss narrative method as a tool to understand central claims in a protracted conflict. The paper is based on the analysis of a selection of texts and an extensive interview material.
