Disciplinary and regulatory governmental proceedings intersect, for instance when disciplinary rules and judiciary norms operate on the basis of suspicion and there-fore just happen to disenfranchise certain groups of people. The case study of Luxembourg’s practice of expulsion before the Second World War offers insights into the administration of ‘undesirable foreigners’ which was based on identifying women who supposedly infringed bourgeois moral gender order. Women from abroad of dubious reputation could become a double threat to bourgeois norms and values. Based on extensive research on archival funds, this article seeks to shed light on the intersecting quality of gendering foreigners and ethnicizing prostitutes in a self-reinforcing bureaucratic procedure leading to deportation.

During the 1980s, refugee camps along the Thai–Cambodian border constituted the power base for the civil war parties opposing the People’s Republic of Kampuchea (PRK, 1979–91). Politics of accommodation and basic services also played a key role in the ‘original accumulation’ of political power by the new regime in Phnom Penh. The resettlement process of Cambodia’s deserted cities developed into a major playground for clientelism, the founda-tion of Cambodia’s state-building process after the Khmer Rouge. Focusing on the archival heritage of the United Nations Transitional Authority in Cam-bodia (UNTAC) 1992–93, a spatial analysis of Phnom Penh’s political geography from the late 1970s to the late 1990s will be provided. This paper argues that the UNTAC time marked a watershed, whose impact has been underrated for Cambodia’s political future: the transition in the accommodation policy of a besieged regime. UNTAC did not end the civil war, but changed the political economy of the country. As the need to ‘camp-in’ and share billeted living space gradually diminished, the socialist ‘moral economy’ mutated into quick money politics and political family business to ensure the hegemonic status of Cambodia’s ruling party further.

This article argues that there is a morphological continuity between rural and urban plot forms in Cambodia. The environment and agrarian use of land are the decisive factors for the location and shape of the plots in the countryside, while urban plots are merely compressed rural versions in a situation of higher population density. From a historico-geographical approach, the morphological emergence of Phnom Penh in its early stage as colonial town and capital of a French protectorate will be presented to highlight this persistency of rural settlement pattern in a specific urban context.

This paper examines the roles of both ‘coloniser’ and ‘colonised’ in the spatial construction of Phnom Penh. This key site of French colonisation in Cambodia was part of a network of French-ruled cities in Indochina, established to steer and enhance the productivity of the colonial society. The production of this particular space in Phnom Penh, however, was at no time simply a top-down process, imposed by the coloniser on the colonised. At the very moment of the foundation of the colonial town, indigenous actors used the city as an opportunity to pursue their own interests. Two contradictory phenomena – the constraints of colonial structures and the agency displayed by individuals – converged to produce a new, ‘equifinal’ urban space. Based on a historical analysis of the expanding urban morphology (in a historico-geographical approach), this article examines the ‘mise-en-valeur’ (capitalistic valorisation) of city space as a bilateral process: com-modification of urban estates and formalisation of planning by the colonial administration with indigenous bandwagoning and – vice versa – freeriding of the colonial state with regard to indigenous common property resources. The supposed opposition between the action of planning and the reaction to being ‘planned’ thus turns out to be a false dichotomy: Phnom Penh’s colonial space emerged as a joint venture in a settlement process that was both formal and informal.

Der vorliegende Band ist ein umfassendes Werk zur Stadtgeschichte und Stadtentwicklung von Phnom Penh von 1860 bis 2010, in dem ein weiter Bogen von der Stadtentwicklung während der französischen Kolonialherrschaft und den verschiedenen Phasen der Herrschaft der Khmer-Eliten über die Schreckensherrschaft des Khmer Rouge-Regimes bis hin zur parlamentarischen Monarchie seit 1993 spannt. Der interdisziplinäre Untersuchungsansatz, der nicht nur auf die Zugänge der historischen Wissenschaften und der Stadtgeographie zurückgreift, sondern auch Perspektiven der Politikwissenschaft, Soziologie und Architektur miteinbezieht, sollte das Werk nicht nur für Historiker/innen und Geograph/innen interessant machen, sondern darüber hinaus auch für eine generell an Stadtentwicklungsprozessen in Südostasien interessierte Leserschaft. Ausgangspunkte der umfassenden historisch-geographischen Analysen, in denen eine Fülle von bislang noch nicht wissenschaftlich bearbeitetem bzw. öffentlich nicht zugänglichem Quellen- und Archivmaterial, vor allem aus der Zeit des französischen Protektorats, ausgewertet wurde, sind zwei unterschiedliche Entwicklungsphasen, die gleichzeitig markante Zäsuren in der Stadtentwicklung darstellen: nämlich einerseits die Etablierung von Phnom Penh als Kolonialstadt in der Doppelfunktion sowohl als Sitz der französischen Protektoratsverwaltung als auch des kontinuierlich an Einfluss verlierenden Khmer-Königtums von den 1860er-Jahren bis zur Unabhängigkeit 1953 und andererseits der „Neustart“ von Phnom Penh durch seine „Wiederbesiedlung“ nach der Vertreibung der Khmer Rouge im Jahr 1979. Tatsächlich stellt Phnom Penh mit der radikalen De-Urbanisierung der Stadt während der Pol Pot-Zeit und der anschließenden Re-Urbanisierung wohl einen einmaligen Sonderfall in der jüngeren Geschichte Südostasiens dar, quasi eine „Laborsituation“, die eine Reihe interessanter Analyseperspektiven ermöglicht.

This thesis offers an analysis of Phnom Penh`s urban space in the longue durée, examining the concurrence of planning ‘from above’ and spontaneous order ‘from below’. By privileging the spatial point of view, the investigation attempts to overcome the false dichotomy of ‘planned’ versus ’unplanned’ order in urban development. Using Phnom Penh as a case-study for city development in a pre-colonial, colonial and post-colonial context, the production of space as a social process is identified in two ways: first ‘literally’ by a historical-critical analysis of the chronological course of urban construction based on archival records and, second, ‘visually’ by scrutinizing master and city plans as well as photographical veduta (i.e. aerial and satellite photography, photos of cityscapes or other relevant urban situations) of past and present. Structure: The thesis consists of five chapters (A-E), organised in three parts (Erster, Zweiter, Dritter Teil). After an introductory chapter (A), dealing with the research topic in general, the first part (chapters B-C) of the investigation follows a morphological approach. It presents the local building and historical town planning traditions of the lower Mekong region in pre-historical times onwards, analysing the pre-colonial times, followed by the French colonial era. The second part (chapter D) deals with the local development during the Cold War, subdivided in two distinct phases: the independence of decolonization (1954-1970s) and the civil war and Khmer Rouge-time (1970s-1989). The third part (chapter E) specifically examines the situation after the fall of the Pol Pot-regime: the ‘new’ independence after the Vietnamese and UN-intervention. The appendix is ex-tensive, but ‘tailor-made’ providing datasheets and detailed background information, e.g. on climate, to allow the interested reader to further deepen some topics. Research questions: Three questions run like a thread through the thesis as recurrent themes: (1) To what extent is the city development a ‘planned’ or ‘unplanned’ process, and which interactions between the two dynamics can be discerned? (2) What power politics from ‘above’ and ‘below’ make up the political economy of space? (3) What kind of continuities and discontinuities can be identified as persistency and change in the cityscape? Social engineering projects ‘from above’ (by diverse governments and power groups) have continuously been challenged, partly evaded and actively counteracted in their own interest ‘from below’ (by the ‘common man’, informal settlers), thus characterizing the social space of Phnom Penh as a ‘common field of action’ (gemeinsamer Aktionsraum). Since colonial times, the physical engineering of space (aligning the urban morphology into a grid-pattern; dividing the city space in [marketable] plots) has been both a transfer from abroad and a quasi-continuity of local proceedings in urban construction. From thispoint of view the transformation of the royal residence-town into a colonial city and the subsequent change from a colonial administration centre of lesser importance within the French Indochinese Union to a dominant capital city of an independent state are revealing a complex pattern of competing interests of all ‘spatial’ actors: rich and poor, mighty and weak, officials and individuals, military and civilian, singles and families. Attempts of social engineering by the use of the built environment and the imple-mentation of physical change to it, however, have also been producing ‘frictions’ (Friktionen) ever since. As result, a third degree of order, besides the intended and non-intended, has emerged: epiphenomena (Epiphänomene; Phänomene der dritten Art). The self-organisation through the ‘auto-agglomeration’ of businesses during the resettlement process after the fall of the Khmer Rouge is examined as an example for this kind of spatial (re)ordering. Concluding the longue durée-analysis of Phnom Penh, the spatial distribution is analysed and presented in full detail as economy of espionage and imitation in chapter (E). Methodology: In order to achieve the primary object of this undertaking to write a historical geography of the production of Phnom Penh’s space, a multidisciplinary approach was necessary, combining historical-critical analysis (Historisch-kritische Methode); geography (spatial analysis, urban morphology) and sociology (questionnaires and interviews, ‘observing participation’). The very heterogeneous mixture of archival sources and newly generated data that informs this study required a reflexive grounded theory. [less ▲]

City planning and land use in Phnom Penh: looking back from "now" to "then". Space is a social product and the production of city space in particular is a cooperative act, combining town planning from "above" and individual land use from "below". Therefore, any dichotomy of "planned" versus "un-planned" is a false one. Looking back from Phnom Penh's "now" (after the fall of the Khmer Rouge-regime" to "then" (colonial times), this lecture will highlight the on-going production of spatial relations between "planning from above" and "from below" as grass-rooted urban planning.
