The Critical Tourism Studies (CTS) community is an international network of scholars who share a vision of producing and promoting social change in and through tourism research, practice, and education. CTS aims to serve as a lively and inclusive forum for rigorous and respectful scholarly discussion, and particularly strives to be a welcoming space for new and alternative voices in the academy. Adopting a broad definition of ‘criticality’, CTS seeks novel ways of understanding and changing tourism by locating the phenomenon in its wider political, economic, cultural, social, and environmental contexts.
