Tourism is part of globalisation. Tourism has changed over the decades as travels become cheaper, new destinations are found and more countries become prosperous. Tourism affects host societies and the issues are often global in scale. These include challenges from climate change, over-tourism and terrorism. On the other hand, tourism offer new social economic opportunities as the world becomes “smaller” and more welcoming. This subject addresses established and emerging global issues in tourism. To emphasise the global dimension of the issues, you will engage with internationally renowned scholars from around the world.
