Human Rights: A Reflective Analysis
Human Rights through Lens of Travel and Tourism
In the discipline of travel and tourism, the economic developments and benefits associated with travel and tourism have been used by countries to implement welfare for the citizens. In such countries where human rights issues connected with discrimination exist, it so happens that the economy of development provided by travel and tourism sector challenges the issues. Some countries have taken up policy making based on how such human rights issues destroy the reputation of the country and its value as a tourism destination. Disciplines other than travel and tourism handle the concerns of human right as applicable to culture and society in different ways. For instance, other fields that may not monetarily connect with improving economic prospects of country of operation, it could be possible that they do charity to help the downtrodden of the country. Nations like the United States have passed economic sanctions and even refused to carry on trade with some nations when there were human rights violations in the country.
Human rights are the most basic of rights which are governed by international and national regulations. The concept of human rights was discussed in the socio-cultural perspective of New Zealand, specifically Aoeteroa. The concept was also discussed under the discipline of travel and tourism.
