Millions of people go on pilgrimage every year and the numbers are increasing despite conflicts in the regions where some of the most famous shrines are located. This global movement is intimately associated with another of increasing significance - tourism. This public discussion, the closing event of a workshop on pilgrimage in a changing Europe, will consider not only the social and cultural dimensions of this relationship but also the business of organising and leading pilgrimage tours in Europe and beyond.
