International Tourism in the 21st century

This core module provides a comprehensive overview and critical analysis of tourism. It runs on the premise that mass tourism will remain the most prominent form of tourism development. One of the major academic concerns has been to develop more responsible and sustainable approaches to the sector.

To that end this module identifies a range of environmental, social, cultural and economic issues that arise out of mass tourism development in different parts of the world. In order to identify the causes as well as to examine possible solutions, the module critically examines the socio-political environment in which mass tourism is situated, namely neo-liberal globalisation.

In this light, we examine how this politics has structured tourism, such as the changed nature of the private sector, the implications of competition between destinations and firms, the relationship between public, private and third sectors, the growing volatility of demand in many destinations and the importance of class and status in tourism. The module also addresses conceptual issues inherent in these criticisms such as the right to tourism, the implications of contemporary tourism development for citizenship and the impact of tourism on less developed and developed countries.

The module also analyses alternative forms of tourism that are trying to address issues of sustainability and ethics. The final section of the module is concerned with developing an in-depth analysis of heritage and urban tourism as distinctive examples of alternative tourism development. - (30 credits) Compulsory

Hospitality and events span a range of jobs that are much more than managing hotels and events delivery. Destinations require management, while there is a huge range of jobs in place marketing and the marketing of individual attractions together with a greater variety of techniques and means of marketing. Discussion of the third sector and public sector institutions and organisations in sustainability and tourism open other areas of employment that covers land use planning, managing partnerships and developing policy in all sorts of areas from training and environmental management to infrastructure and transport planning. Within the key institutions of hospitality there are many other jobs such as human resource or supply chain management.
