‘Dark Tourism’: Definitions and Research Parameters



This paper reveals the key themes and issues of dark tourism as both a research concept as well as an empirical practice. The paper offers a rudimentary outline of the main research themes, issues and consequences of dark tourism, as well as stating a definition of the term. Ultimately, the paper provides an overview of dark tourism as a contested concept, as well as an academic lens in which to scrutinize ‘difficult heritage’.
