The six contributors to this issue's 'the Focus', edited by Trinidad Rico, address challenging case studies of preservation of tangible and intangible heritage in six different regions of Asia; they aim to highlight how the involvement of heritage experts affects the very nature of cultural heritage objects and practices, including the choice of approaches that are used for their study.
