The panel revolves around the strong relationship between the two disciplines-Anthropology and Tourism and how this may be a major aid for all intervention and development programs.
Both Anthropology and Tourism requires an independent understanding of cultures of different societies but with a different perspective. Where anthropological studies reveal various aspects of the culture of a place, tourism on the other hand is closely concerned with cultural intermixing of the people of the two different places. Both the outcome of such cross cultural contacts are the important issues of today. Thus the panel bring forth the strong connections between the two disciplines and their role in the process of development.
