Tourism Watch


Tourism Watch works for the consistent application of a human rights approach in tourism that has a central focus on the interests and needs of local people and we are committed to strengthening the social and cultural dimensions of sustainability in tourism. We establish our own discussion and dialogue formats with relevant policy makers and tourism managers in Germany and internationally. Furthermore, we participate in selected dialogue fora with politicians and industry representatives that are aimed at making tourism responsible and sustainable.

In our Tourism Watch newsletter we help voices from tourist destinations to be heard, highlight recent publications and events, and place development discussions in tourism in a larger context. The Tourism Watch is published every two to three months. Furthermore, we bring out our own specialised publications and write articles for development magazines. We are available to journalists and authors for interviews and background discussions.
