Claude Jacques

Portrait of Claude   Jacques

Claude Jacques (1929-2018) was the head of EPHE (IVe section), and special counselor for Angkor with UNESCO. Epigraphist and researcher, he has been an indefatigable force in the recognition of Angkor monuments as part of UNESCO World Cultural Heritage.

King Norodom Sihamoni recognized his contribution by awarding him the Grand Cross of the Royal Order of Sahametri in June 2017.
