Cultural Tourism

The diversity of the world’s cultures, both past and present, is one of the key attractions of travel. Governments, the tourism industry, and communities work hard to create unforgettable cultural products and experiences. But are the economic benefits of these experiences shared equally with communities? Are they sustainable environmentally, are they culturally appropriate experiences to share, and do communities have control over how their culture is represented? This sub collection contains resources to assist communities, researchers, and other stakeholders to engage with the ethical and practical dimensions of cultural tourism, and to develop appropriate policies and protocols for their own unique situation.
