Paul Lynch is Professor of Critical Hospitality and Tourism, Edinburgh Napier University. Paul’s research focuses upon critical and sociological perspectives on hospitality and tourism and through exploring commercial homes has led to his main areas of publications concentrating on small hospitality and tourism firm entrepreneurs, including women micro-entrepreneurs, social enterprises, tourism destination networks and networking, advanced qualitative research methods (sociological impressionism and sociological expressionism), hospitality and space. Deepening understanding of commercial home enterprises has drawn attention to the interactions between host and guest, host and home, the nature of hospitality and how the study of hospitality sheds light on people, work and society. Paul’s most recent research focuses upon understanding the experience of mundane welcome.
With colleagues in the United Kingdom, United States and New Zealand, Paul pioneered the launch of a new intentionally interdisciplinary journal Hospitality & Society which seeks to provide a hospitable meeting-ground for the discussion, exchange of ideas and advancing theoretical developments relating to perspectives on hospitality. Paul is also currently on the editorial boards of the following journals: International Journal of Hospitality and Tourism Administration; Tourism Review; Research in Hospitality Management. Paul previously worked at the University of Strathclyde and Queen Margaret University. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Hospitality, former Chair (Research) of the Council for Hospitality Management Education, Visiting Professor at the University of Stenden, Hotelschool The Hague, and Auckland University of Technology.
Dr Alison McIntosh is Professor of Hospitality and Tourism at Auckland University of Technology, New Zealand. Born and raised in the South-West of England, she earned her Bachelor of Tourism Studies (First Class Hons) from Cardiff Metropolitan University and a PhD from Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh. After emigrating to New Zealand in 1997, Professor McIntosh assumed academic positions at The University of Otago, Lincoln University and most recently as Professor of Tourism at The University of Waikato in New Zealand. She also holds a Visiting Professor position at Edinburgh Napier University, Scotland.
In her research, Professor McIntosh focuses on critical understandings of the tourism and hospitality experience, with particular focus on issues of accessibility, social justice and advocacy. A central theme of her research is that experiential, qualitative and social justice analyses reveal subjective, emotional and neglected aspects of tourism experiences, prioritising otherwise unheard voices, personal dimensions, and tourism in marginalised contexts. Professor McIntosh is Founding Co-Editor of the international journals, Hospitality & Society (Intellect) and Hospitality Insights (Tuwhera) and serves on the editorial boards of other leading tourism journals. She is also Co-Founder of the outreach network, Network for Community Hospitality, that supports not-for-profits and community stakeholders in tackling some of New Zealand’s pressing social issues.

Carol Martínez, representative of the organization Ciutat per a qui l'Habita. "Ciutat per a qui l’habita” is an association of citizens from Palma de Mallorca who work to provide answers to the touristification of the city. We aim at creating a web of support among the different neighborhoods and groups of the city, and to organize social actions that would help to shatter the established ‘peace’ around tourism and to show the negative effects that tourism has on the land and on social cohesion, so that we can contribute to create a community that can stop it and reverse this situation
Joaquin Valdivielso Navarro is a member of Terraferida (Wounded Land), an environmental association born in January 2015 and based in Mallorca. Terraferida questions the style of development based on the unsustainable consumption of environmental resources and services, and the continuous expansion of the urban-tourist growth model. Terraferida denounces the hidden face of the Mallorca behind the postcards and tourist promotion and claims that a decent life is possible without destroying the island, compromising the future or contributing to the ecological ruin of the planet. To do this, Terraferida provides a space for reflection, dissemination and information to public opinion, which can be followed on terraferida.cat, Twitter, Facebook and the Telegram channel. Professionally, Joaquin Valdivielso Navarro is Associate Professor of Moral Philosophy at the Department of Philosophy and Social Work at the University of the Balearic Islands (UIB) and member of the Research Group on Practical Philosophy - Praxis. As a scholar, his research profile focuses on contemporary political philosophy, critical theories of society, and ethics and politics of the environment.

Milagros Carreño, Representative of Les Kellys in Ibiza and Formentera. See this website for more information about this social movement Les Kellys. This association was born out of the belief that beyond personal political preferences the union of housekeepers of the Hospitality industry would benefit the debate about their work conditions and help them to achieve a public voice. The association supports a broad spectrum of demands such as early retirement, that the quality assessment of hotels will be depending of the quality of the work that they provide, or the increase of checks of labor conditions.
