Researching a Travel Guide to Israel During the Gaza War of 2014

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Robinson's research for the upcoming 8th edition of Lonely Planet’s travel guidebook Israel and the Palestinian Territories took place during the summer of 2014, while missiles were flying and foreign tourists were a rare sight. Based on scores of interviews with Jewish, Christian, and Muslim Israelis, this session will look at Israel’s hugely important tourism industry and the way it copes with crises. It will also feature some lesser-known but fascinating places to visit.
