 In memoriam - Karin Bras

It is with great sadness that ATLAS has learned that our friend and colleague Karin Bras was among those killed on board Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 on Thursday, together with partner Theo Kamsma and their son. Karin was a long-time supporter of ATLAS during her time at Tilburg University, the Free University of Amsterdam and finally as a Lecturer at InHolland University in Amsterdam. Having completed her doctoral research on informal guiding in Indonesia, she contributed to a number of studies on tourism development and entrepreneurship. She was also recently closely involved in the organisation of the ATLAS Africa conference in Rwanda in 2013, where she played an important role in supporting local researchers. As well as her important professional contribution to ATLAS, Karin also inspired her colleagues with her irrepressible enthusiasm and humour. She will be sorely missed, and our thoughts go out to her family, friends and colleagues.

June 18th 2014, 4 members of the ATLAS board were part of the doctoral committee of the promotion research of Päivi Kannisto, Global Nomad. To enlighten your summer, ATLAS offers its members a free copy of the book (we will only ask for EURO 15 shipping and handling costs). We will send the members a bulletin with more information.
