New book by Jasim Khan. The impact of political turmoil on tourism destinations has been witnessed as anything from the subtle to devastating. Kashmir, a once thriving tourism destination, has been devastated by a terrible geopolitical conflict that is now over six decades old. This geopolitical conflict has completely decimated the image and operation of the tourism industry in the region. Once one of Asia’s top tourism destinations, Kashmir has now become synonymous with political conflict and unrest. Using a mixed methods approach (both primary and secondary research), this study assessed the impact of political conflict and geopolitical instability on the tourism industry in Indian Administered Kashmir. The book reveals the profound economic, environmental, and socio-cultural impacts on the tourism industry of Kashmir.
