The Yellow Tourism Consortium
YTC is a Research Group which aims to provide a forum for scholars working on diverse aspects of heritage and tourism protection against any form of criminality, safety, resilience and sustainability establishing a worldwide protection culture. The concept of “yellow tourism” draws on Dostoevsky’s novel Crime & Punishment, in which the colour yellow was symbolically associated with corruption and decay. Our aim is twofold: First, to gradually build a scientific community (and a corresponding body of knowledge), which, second, would facilitate the creation of sustainable tourism development strategies and policies and ultimately enable more responsible industry standards in holiday services for all people and communities involved.
