Eisenhower Professor of Tourism Policy Donald Hawkins has been appointed special advisor for the Knowledge Network to the United Nations World Tourism Organization’s (UNWTO) secretary general.
The Knowledge Network, launched in January 2011, is a UNWTO research body that aims to develop a worldwide association of institutions that establish research and knowledge management standards on tourism analysis, policy and governance.
The network is comprised of over 125 institutions, organizations and enterprises from 40 different countries with a demonstrated research competency and extensive experience in development and innovation affecting tourism.
Taleb Rifai, the secretary general, told Hawkins that he wanted “to benefit from your extensive experience in the field of knowledge management on tourism in your country, in particular, as well as on the international level.”
