ARE DARK TOURISM AND THANATOURISM ETHICAL?

Amândio da Silva

Abstract


Tourism has grown by leaps and bounds and is still one of the fastest growing industries in terms of revenues and employment generation around the globe. It covers a wide range of independent and yet interdependent sectors like transport, accommodation, travel services, food and beverage, recreation and entertainment, among others (Khan, 2014).

However, modern tourism is diverting into areas that a few years ago would not be considered as tourism, like dark tourism, thanatourism and slum tourism.

This paper tries to analyze the ethical issues linked to dark tourism/thanatourism, its impact on the local communities and other related issues.
