Tourism has been advocated as a tool for socio-economic progress in the Global South for over three decades, however, the internationalization of emerging tourism economies aggravated rather than alleviated inequalities on local levels. Given that the bulk of sustainable tourism literature remains on the level of international policy measures (and the critique of these), we know little about how  development in practice is connected to transnational mobilities and tourism flows and the impact of these on communities in Global South. There is a need for not only revising large-scale policy initiatives but also to analyze the micro-level dynamics of contemporary community-based tourism initiatives. This anthology integrates research advances from sustainable tourism and development studies and offers selected contributions discussing the nexus of communities in the Global South with pro-poor sustainable tourism and development. As such, the book attempts to integrate approaches from development studies with tourism studies and to identify common grounds for future research endeavours.
