Siamese Heritage Trust of The Siam Society launched its new publication “Heritage Lawyer: Laws for Cultural Heritage Protection” during the Pan-Asian conference “Heritage Protection: The Asian Experience” which took place during 25-26 January 2019. The book was first published in Thai in June 2017.
It summarises case studies of communities and private sectors that tried to protect their community heritage by using the existing laws. There are both successful and unsuccessful stories. In the last chapter, all laws related to cultural heritage protection are listed as a reference and tool for the public.
The whole project of community forums and book printing in its first stage was supported by The Asia Foundation, Professor Kanung Luchai’s Foundation, and Professor William Klausner. Mrs Pikulkeaw Krairiksh, President of The Siam Society, kindly gave generous support to the English version. The book was translated by Mr Visanu Euarchikiati, Siamese Heritage Trust Committee Member, and edited by Dr Chris Baker, Acting Third Vice-President of The Siam Society and Honorary Editor of JSS.
