Research, write and blog about a tourism related issue for a developing country
, identify an example from a developing country where tourism, for whatever reason, has not delivered a sustainable economic sector (for example, there may have been limited economic impacts due to high foreign ownership) or the tourism sector is constrained by a range of external factors (for example, governance arrangements of the country do not allow for local engagement in the tourism sector). Examples will be discussed in class and students are encouraged to discuss their selected topic with the course staff.
- Secondly, comprehensively research the issue and use a wide range of academic, government, and other online sources (i.e. blogs, news articles, etc.). Research should cover the context/background, the problem/issue, the impact on the country/region, etc. See blackboard for further information on the types of things that might form part of your research.
