The International Conference on Archaeology and Tourism

The international conference on Archaeology and Tourism will be held in cooperation between the Department of History and Archaeology at Birzeit University, the Palestinian Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities and the Network for Experiential Tourism in Palestine (NEPTO). The conference will be held at Birzeit University from 13 till15, March 2017.

Several conferences and workshops have been conducted during the past years discussing various tourism aspects and ways to develop them in Palestine. Most of these meetings proposed that tourism is one of the areas which require continuous development through various private sector enterprises, research, and academic programs. In the same framework, there are several archaeological and cultural heritage projects which have had a valuable contribution to the economic development in Palestine.
