Tourism in South-East Asia is without doubt an ever-growing sector and income generator for millions of people directly or indirectly involved in the industry (UNWTO, 2013). At the same time it constitutes a social phenomenon connecting people and cultures, not only the Western tourist and their ‘hosts’ (Smith, 1989; Yamashita, 2004), but also those local to the region, based on a rise in domestic and intra-regional travel (Winter et al., 2009). However, tourism has also caused increasing socioeconomic inequality and vast disruptions to local ecosystems, societies and cultures, above all through the expansion of an industry that often exceeds local carrying capacity limits, supported through injections of capital by external funding bodies with little local initiative and capacity.

Nevertheless, although tourism’s repercussions are well known, it constitutes a widely used tool for poverty
alleviation and development in SEA (Harrison & Schipani, 2007).

This panel welcomes critical contributions on the broader topic of tourism and
development, stemming from a wide array of disciplines, such as
  • geography,
  • tourism studies,
  • development studies,
  • anthropology,
  • political science or
  • environmental studies. 

Presentations will include but are not limited to the following aspects:
  • tourism for sustainable development;
  • eco- or community-based tourism initiatives;
  • international, local and regional cooperation in tourism for development;
  • the social,environmental and political processes of tourism as a development tool and
  • approaches to development based on tourism in SEA.

Authors are invited to submit a title, five keywords, and brief abstract (not more than
250 words) to the session convenors:
