Study ,Human Rights in Tourism‘ presented at ITB


At the request of GIZ (Enterprise for International Cooperation), Christian Baumgartner was working on a study on Human Rights in Tourism. Cases that became known in the course of the past 10 years, were analysed with reference to human rights, perpetrators, victims, etc., and existing instruments are tested for their efficacy. With a view to devising recommendations addressed to governments, donor agencies, the tourism industry and NGOs on how to avoid human-rights incidents, a few examples have been analysed in greater detail by way of in-depth interviews and on-site visits.

The outcomes were presented at the ITB 2015 in Berlin.

The present study – still designed for Naturefriends International – was drawn up together with mascontour (Berlin).
