REVIEW: Tourism and Citizenship:Rights, freedoms and responsibilities in the global order, by Raoul Bianchi (University of East London) and Marcus Stephenson(Middlesex University Dubai),sets out toinvestigate differential patterns of mobility by exploring the ways in which ideological and political processes have confounded the notions of freedom, movement, and the right to travel.With a sociological lens, theyinvestigatethe differentiated relationships between tourism and citizenship by asking‘what role does citizenship play in shaping participation in travel and tourism,’ and ‘how is citizenship extended through travel’? In doing so they examine thefallacies of neoliberal globalization as a driver of international tourism, contest the notion that tourism as exclusively related to freedom, and examine the interconnections of freedom of mobility, right to travel, and citizenship.
