Abstract

This paper will examine the legal basis of the human right to development and the impact of global tourism upon the cultural and socio-economic rights of indigenous peoples; it will also question the effectiveness of unilaterally drafted, voluntary codes of conduct (such as the recent UNWTO policy response) which seek to protect local communities against those human rights abuses that may be brought about by the tourism industry. Finally it will suggest a framework within which the right to development might be ethically realised and indigenous socio-economic and cultural rights preserved.
