is not a new focus of tourism studies but the relationship between
tourism and Islam, pilgrimages aside, has long been ignored and is still
relatively little studied. Muslims' tourism - which several authors
refer to as Islamic tourism – is a marginal topic in tourism literature;
as is the way in which Islam can shape and influence tourism strategies
in countries where it is the State religion or it has a significant
influence. Moreover, for a long time the tourism industry did not
sufficiently consider the needs of Muslims (as tourists) and Islamic
prescriptions when developing tourism products.
He decline of the Ben Ali regime and the rise to power of an Islamic party as moderate as Ennahda have,
for the first time, made possible the introduction of new categories
previously censored in political debate. After 2011's revolution,
various institutional meetings with Muslim countries interested in halal products (including tourism) have been accompanied by initiatives to promote the growth of Tunisian halal production. Emblematic in this sense are the dialogues with Malaysia, leader in the halal market, and with Turkey, showing an interest in intensifying bilateral cooperation in various sectors, including tourism.
research tries to detect whether there is interest, attention and
further signs of openness towards Islamic tourism in Tunisia – factors
that, in other Muslim countries, are noticeably growing.
