Volunteer tourism: the lifestyle politics of international development

Volunteer tourism: the lifestyle politics of international development

Samenvatting

The content of the book Volunteer Tourism is current and relevant in today’s tourism discussion about, citizenship, development and cosmopolitanism. The authors provide a vocabulary not only for tourism scholars but also for people interested in mobility and morality. The book frames volunteer tourism as an expression of a diminished political subjectivity while at the same time recognizing the importance of volunteering, celebrating travel and affirming humanitarianism. The authors have delivered a work which contributes greatly to a comprehensive critical understanding of the volunteer tourism phenomenon. The book evokes a discussion among my colleagues and made me reflect about volunteer tourism and tourism in general. Through themes they portray volunteer tourism as a search for meaning in a globalized world with a global citizenship.
