Brief Introduction Top

My research focuses on the ethical and responsible possibilities enacted in tourism, situated within the larger context of social initiatives like sustainable development, ethical consumerism, and ‘first world responsibilities’ to the ‘third world’. More generally, I am also interested in research regarding the mobilities of people – in the broad spectrum from tourism to migration, as well as the mobilities and fluidities of abstract idea(l)s such as moral and social responsibilities, ethics, and care (at a distance), and how these translate into real practices on the ground.
