An investigation into the relationship between tourism development and extreme poverty alleviation in rural Bangladesh
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis contributes to the understanding of the relationship between tourism development and extreme poverty alleviation in rural Bangladesh. It adopts a critical theory approach to investigate the social, economic, physical, cultural and political barriers that exclude rural poor and indigenous communities from tourism development benefits. An integrated model proposes that these communities can be included in tourism development through gaining power, legitimacy and urgency as definitive stakeholders, thereby alleviating extreme poverty in developing countries.
