This book combines studies of inclusivity in tourism with a future lens and provides timely insights into current research and discussions on social inclusion. The chapters examine a range of inclusivity issues and the different ways that inclusive tourism development can be enacted. The volume presents an opportunity to critically consider the different actors and voices in the field of tourism and how to channel these voices and who has the right to do so. It allows us to use our imaginations to consider a future that can be welcoming of different ways of being, doing and knowing to empower all participants in the planning and development of tourism and hospitality.
