Summary

There is very little that travel and tourism companies can do to prepare for the threats of terrorism & conflict beyond increasing security. This thematic research report takes an in-depth look at the theme of Terrorism & Conflict and the impact it has on the industry, its players, and also on tourists.


Key Highlights

Terrorist attacks often occur out of the blue and a destination can be sent into total disarray as a result. While conflicts are usually easier to predict and prepare for, travel companies ultimately have no power over decisions and the destructive effects can be even more widespread than that of a terrorist attack.

Some of the areas under the biggest threat of conflicts are rich with culture and could be huge tourist destinations if peace was restored. Despite the destruction and suffering that terrorism & conflict causes, there are occasions where a silver lining can be found.

NGOs are heavily involved in helping those affected by war and in rebuilding efforts, which are crucial to restore any viable travel and tourism industry. Efforts from DMOs as well as local companies are also needed to improve the public image of a destination after a terrorist attack or conflict.

Other travel and tourism companies involved with the theme are those who specialize in tours either to countries experiencing conflict or to destinations with places of interest related to past conflict.
