Phoenix tourism: Post-Conflict Tourism Role.

  This paper explores the processes affecting tourism development following a
major political conflict in Bosnia and Herzegovina (B&H). The adopted critical theory analytical
approach resulted in the identification of phoenix tourism, conceptualised as a distinctive
period in post-conflict tourism development. Instead of locating tourism in the context of
economic enhancement, tourism is located in the context of social renewal of the destination
and its people. Although post-conflict tourism is usually conceptualised under dark tourism
scholarship, phoenix tourism is not proposed as a type of tourism, but as a role given to tourism
in a process through which conflict issues develop into a new heritage. Keywords: phoenix
tourism, dark tourism, emancipatory knowledge, post-conflict context. �
