The Tour Less Taken: Debates on Tourism, Trade and Globalisation

Book cover
We have worked for over a decade linking critical issues in the trade and tourism debates at national and international levels. The thrust of our work has been to question the ability of a deregulated and fully liberalised tourism economy to bring sustainable gains to local communities. This has included analysing liberalisation and deregulation moves of national and state governments in India and scrutinising the role of international institutions like the WTO, UNWTO, World Bank and ADB in promoting tourism. However, our biggest challenge remains to bring together the diverse players and institutions involved in tourism development, to address issues of concern. This publication attempts to bridge that gap in democratic consultation. It puts together speeches, perspectives and articles from across the world linking issues of trade and globalisation to tourism. It also includes views of those who believe that opening up and deregulating trade in tourism will lead to greater economic gains for all involved. This is contested by the analyses and experiences of community representatives, campaigners and researchers from around the world. We hear from those regions of the developing world where tourism has been or is now promoted as a major engine of economic growth and community empowerment.
