DescriptionGender based violence (GBV) in travel and tourism is embedded within wider social structures of gender inequalities and discrimination. This book focuses on the multiple and interconnected manifestations of violence that women and girls encounter in tourism consumption and production, such as physical, sexual, emotional or socio-economic abuse. The book adopts a multidisciplinary perspective in its critical examination of the theoretical landscape of GBV, and its engagement with case studies on GBV and sexual harassment. It draws on feminist, intersectional and post-colonial frameworks, bringing together contributions from academics and practitioners across the globe.
Provides a critical approach to gender-based violence as part of broader social structures of inequality and discrimination in the tourism and hospitality industries.
Draws on a range of disciplinary approaches, includinggender studies, geography, international relations, law, sociology and tourism studies.
Brings together work by scholars who are engaging with the concept of gender-based violence in a wide range of tourism settings and practices.
Includes profiles of organisations and initiatives that are attempting to tackle GBV in tourism, hospitality and beyond.
Exploring an important topic of current times, this book will be of interest to researchers and practitioners in the areas of tourism, hospitality, gender studies, international relations, law, geography and sociology.
