Daniel Hayward

This briefing note collects together papers concerned with land relations as presented in the 13th International Conference on Thai Studies (ICTS 13) and the Tenth International Convention of Asia Scholars (ICAS 10). These two conferences were held back-to-back in Chiang Mai during the month of July, 2017. The note attempts to draw a narrative line through academic case studies on land in Thailand, backed up by examples throughout Southeast Asia. In this way, it is hoped that greater clarity can be placed on the growing interest of academia in land, making case studies available for consideration by a wide range of practitioners.
