International Journal of Business and Globalisation (IJBG), Vol. 13, No. 3, 2014

Abstract: As travel becomes more and more accessible for individuals, the potential for risk at destination will develop. As a potential way forward the education of stakeholders in the form of travellers offers policy makers a potential window to limit risk and enhance safety whilst engaging in travel. As a potential force for good, the actions of the mobile tourist could be harnessed and used as a mechanism to enhance law enforcement and creation safe mobile environments. The aim of the paper is to explore the role of tourists in facilitating safe tourist environments with a specific focus on limiting child trafficking. The article takes a conceptual approach in reviewing the ethics associated with employing tourists as agents for risk reduction and enhanced safety and identifies cases where this has been employed and put to effective use. The paper concludes by addressing the rights and responsibilities afforded to tourists during their overseas stay and of their role in limiting risk at destination. Further discussion is also made of the role that policy makers and product providers play in ensuring that ethics of stay are adhered to and upheld.
