Griffith University's strategic initiative in sustainable tourism research combines the expertise of the International Centre for Ecotourism Research, led by Professor Ralf Buckley; and the Centre for Tourism, Sport and Services Research, led by Professor Bev Sparks.
The initiative has three reseach themes: tourism and conservation, tourism and climate change, and tourism and corporate responsibility.
Other key research faculty include Professor David Weaver, Professor Susanne Becken, Associate Professor Laura Lawton, Dr Guy Castley, Dr Fernanda Pegas, Dr Alexandra Coghlan, Dr Clare Morrison, Dr Aishath Shakeela and Dr Clar-Lee McLennan. Projects and publications for faculty members are available on their individual Griffith University home pages, on the ICER and TSSR sites, or on Griffith Research Online.
The initiative operates cooperative research projects worldwide, with funds to support international visitors. It also offers competitive fee scholarships for international postgraduate students undertaking PhD studies supervised by its Faculty members.
