Summary "Post-disaster and post-conflict tourism has recently emerged as a prominent topic of research and considers new risks that jeopardize tourism travel to destinations that have recently experienced climate-related disasters, civil conflicts, and other challenges. This volume presents a host of innovative strategies that could be adopted by post-colonial, post-conflict, and post-disaster destinations to encourage travel and tourism in these areas. Policymakers are focusing their efforts on identifying and eradicating external and/or internal risks in order to protect the tourism industry in their regions, in line with a new spirit that is clearly orientated toward mitigating risks. This capacity of adaptation suggests two important things that are at the heart of this book. On the one hand, tourism serves as a resilient mechanism that is helping destinations in their recovery strategy. On another hand, this raises ethical issues related to tourism consumption. This book creates a bridge between the conceptual discussions around "dark consumption" (tourism directed to places that are identified with death and suffering) and the urgency to develop an empirical model that will support destination marketing organizations in a rapidly changing world. Post-Disaster and Post-Conflict Tourism: Toward a New Management Approach explores the research and suggests new approaches with topics such as looking at tourism as a vehicle toward recovery, educating tourists at the pre-visit stage, post-colonial branding and self-branding, using sports tourism and food events as a marketing strategy, the ethics revolving around post-disaster consumption, and much more. With contributions from experts in this emerging field, this volume is a rich response for travel and tourism professionals, policymakers, researchers, and others."-- Provided by publisher
