About Slumtourism.net

Slumtourism.net was created to bring together academics and practitioners who work on tourism in deprived urban areas. Equally it will provide updates on news on tourism to these areas and offer a platform for people to share their work.

Why the name slumtourism.net? Contrary to the more popular term poverty tourism that appears to restrict the visit of impoverished urban areas to watching poverty, slum tourism simply applies to the area that is being visited.
