– In the context of heritage tourism, community participation has been pinpointed as one of the essential factors influencing the outcome of sustainable development. While most government seek to engage the local community in this process, the approach may differ from country to country. Moreover, most relevant studies were conducted in Western contexts, which were too far away from Asia both geographically and culturally. Thus, they may not reflect the actual practice in the East. This article provides an overarching framework to synthesize current findings in community participation in sustainable development and proposes a research agenda to stimulate additional works that reflect the contextual characteristics of Asian sustainability.
