This call invites abstracts from potential contributors to an edited book entitled Terrorism and Tourism, contemporary insights, whose proposal was submitted by Cândida Cadavez and Ana Paula Pires. This book focuses on a recent reality which is forcing tourism players and stakeholders to review practices and routines as a result of terrorist threats and attacks. This is a subject that needs a multidisciplinary and academic approach that has been neglected so far.

Thinking back of the 80s and 90s, one can easily remember some different situations in which tourists were victims of terrorism – 1985 Achille Lauro hijacking, 1988 Lockerbie bombing, or 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games bombing.

In the new millennium the industry of tourism has been forced to deal with other situations, whose global impact and awareness have made them impossible to be forgotten by all players as iconic heritage and tourism destination are also at stake, as happened in 2001 with the Bamiyan Statues in Afghanistan or with the Twin Towers, in New York, in 2002 at the Dubrovka Theater, in Russia, or in March 2015 at the Bardo Museum, in Tunis, or even more recently in Paris, and Turkey.

The aim of this book is to discuss how the tourism activity is being affected by regional, national, international or global terrorism threats and attacks that end up messing with a sector which is globally recognized as a tool for the promotion of peace and understanding, as stated by the Global Code of Ethics for Tourism.

CALL FOR CHAPTER ABSTRACTS

This volume invites empirical and conceptual contributions that elaborate on this phenomenon.

Possible topics to be discussed by these chapters include, but are not limited to the following:
- How destinations deal with (global) security threats;
- How security threats interfere (or not) with the promotion of the destination; how destinations represent/re-design themselves;
- How the targeted places and/or icons are recycled;
- How the decision-making process done by tourists is influenced by terrorist threats to destinations;
- How stakeholders handle the label of “unsecured” destination/attraction;
- How WTO, the European Union and other entities deal with terrorist threats in tourism destinations.

Please submit a 250-500 word abstract, outlining your proposed chapter, which clearly articulates the chapter’s contribution to the needed academic and empirical reflection and literature on the effects of terrorism on tourism. Your proposals should not have been previously published nor be currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. Include a mini-bio (max. 100 words).

For further information, please do not hesitate to contact the editors.
