ABSTRACT OF PAPER
 
Title of Paper:
Cultural Tourism and Heritage Law
 
Paper Proposal Text :
This article describes the impact of heritage tourism law as a positive influence on particular economies and societies. Sustainable tourism law examples illustrate the great potential to create and indirectly support job creation in several segments of the economy, while maintaining the environment, culture, and jobs for future generations. It argues that sustainable development can be achieved through tourism laws by increasing employment opportunities, developing infrastructure, and by creating host people’s standards for individual, corporate and social activities related to tourism. This article emphasizes that the significance of maintaining cultural heritage as important both for the common heritage of humanity but also for the daily lives of people that make a living from the income created by tourism. While some helpful laws and treaties are described, the conclusion points to the need for new and stronger legal protections of cultural heritage to enable sustainable tourism development.
