Cultural rights and conservation of Old Bangkok
Akagawa, Natsuko and Tiamsoon Sirisrisak. 2013. Cultural rights and conservation of Old Bangkok. In C. Baker (ed.). Protecting Siam’s Heritage. University of Washington Press: United States.
Cultural diversity is one of the major characteristics of old Bangkok resulting from various groups of local people of different race and religion. Unfortunately, the development of old Bangkok has always been tied up with the interests of politicians. Therefore, lack of public dialog and acknowledgement of cultural diversity remain as major issues.
