Chapter Summary

Cultural tourism does not take place in enclaves or far-away resorts, but in Latin American societies and among populations themselves. This is the introduction chapter of the book, which examines the implications of cultural tourism on local societies, when and how these tourist activities are integrated into local societies, and how successful these efforts have been in the long run. The case studies in the book contribute to the ongoing debate on the relationship between global processes of change and their expressions and consequences at the local level. The book examines the interaction between global and local processes of change. It also contributes to the expanding discussion on what may be called international cultural policies, which are embodied most visibly in UNESCO but are also apparent in other organizations such as the International Development Bank, the World Bank and a wide array of NGOs.

Keywords: cultural tourism; Latin America; local societies; UNESCO
