Ethical Tourism: Who Benefits? by Institute of Ideas
Ethical and responsible travel is promoted and advocated by campaigns, NGOs and many "alternative" travel companies. But this message is mixed - few can agree on precisely what does and what does not constitute ethical or responsible tourism, but most agree that there is a need to curb the excesses of the industry and of holiday makers themselves. The contributors cover a range of differing perspectives on ethical tourism. The Institute of Idea's mission is to expand the boundaries of public debate through organizing conferences, discussions and salons, and publishing written conversations and exchanges in a hope to play a part in shaking up a culture that seems to shy away more and more from confrontation and the clash of ideas.
