The upcoming issue of the Austrian Journal of South-East Asian Studies (ASEAS) focuses on tourism’s contribution to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Southeast Asia. It invites contributions that focus on one or several of the SDGs, demonstrating best practices as much as challenges. It seeks to understand the links between different goals, while also portraying the multiple perspectives and cooperations that exist in pursuing the SDGs. It therefore welcomes critical papers on tourism’s contribution to the SDGs from a variety of disciplines, such as geography, tourism studies, development studies, anthropology, political science, or environmental studies.
