In 2007 Planeta.com hosts an online conference focusing on Tourism and Migration which will highlight timely news and innovative work around the world.
ABOUT THE CONFERENCE – The Tourism and Migration E-Conference is Planeta’s 18th formal e-conference. The format will differ from previous events in that dialogue will run over six months.
January/February – Dialogue among co-sponsors and those who register early.
March/April – Additional participants will be allowed entry in March and April.
May/June – Participants will conclude the dialogue by preparing recommendations and announcing individual and collaborative projects.
REGISTRATION – Registration is open.
BACKGROUND – Tourism enterprises are increasingly considered as as providing an alternative to migration and a vehicle to alleviate poverty in developing economies by creating jobs. Likewise, tourists are staying longer in places — blurring the distinction between tourism and migration. The Tourism and Migration E-Conference will address these issues and allow participants time to prepare recommendations and announce individual and collaborative endeavors.
REQUIREMENTS – Active participants are asked to have a professional interest in tourism or migration. You don’t have to be an expert in both topics. Active participants will be required to post an introduction and to post at least two messages per month. An account on the Planeta Forum is necessary for active participation, though the posts can be read by all.
SPONSORS – Sponsorship opportunities are available.
CALL FOR PAPERS – Planeta.com is seeking ordinal essays and recommended links to resources elsewhere on the Web. If you care to contribute an article or suggest a link, consult our writers’ guidelines.

We ask participants to reflect upon the following questions:

How effective is tourism in creating jobs and providing an alternative to migration?
What role do long-term foreign residents play in educating visitors?
Are investments in tourism training and infrastructure a viable outlet for migrant remittances?
To what degree does tourism development displace local people?
