COVID-19 in Small Tourism Dependent Caribbean Islands

banner-covid-tourism

This Working Group aims to examine the discourses and imagined futures surrounding economic impacts and political responses to the COVID-19 pandemic in small, tourism-dependent Caribbean islands. With the reliance on tourism and other external sources for economic viability, COVID-19 will have strong and lasting impacts on Caribbean futures. It is important for scholars to study how COVID-19 affects the region and beyond, and to propose possible frameworks for sustainability and self-resilience as rapid responses to the situation.
