The central focus of this book is the interaction between law and tourism with a view to attaining sustainable tourism. This book aims to achieve that goal by approaching law and tourism from various angles. On the one hand, sustainable tourism will be put in a broader context by, for example, outlining the principles and philosophy of sustainable tourism, but also explaining how principles of sustainable tourism can be taught through educational programmes in developing countries. The question therefore arises as to how that Global Code could also be integrated in legal teaching. There are, moreover, many examples in developing countries of successful sustainable tourism. To provide concrete examples of those success stories and to critically analyze them, we focus on one particular case, the case of Indonesia, and cite cases of sustainable tourism (strongly focusing on how law and legal rules have contributed to sustainable tourism) mostly on the islands of Java and Bali.
