This book addresses the application of sustainable HRM principles within tourism in the specific context of Africa, a neglected area of study. It draws on diverse aspects of HRM, from the micro- (individual) through the meso-level (organisational) to the macro-level (policy, governmental). It also reflects the diverse challenges facing a critical area within emerging African tourism, that of its workforce. The book is substantially research-based and provides a state-of-the-art picture of emergent studies in this area, drawing on case examples from a wide-range of African contexts. As such, it provides a comprehensive resource and starts discussion in an emergent research area.
