Assessment of tourism lessons from Northern Ireland: a post-conflict perspective
The aim of this fully-funded PhD project is to investigate the tourism development strategies and lessons that emerge from Northern Ireland for other post-conflict destinations. Northern Ireland received 2.2 million out-of-state visitors in 2016 (4.5 million when domestic visitors are included), with the expectation that this will grow by 25% by the end this decade - with tourism becoming a billion-pound industry). This is in marked contrast to less than 500,000 visitors and revenues of less than £100 million in 1981 in the midst of conflict era 1969-1994.
