This chapter examines the role of Antarctic polar diplomacy in the management of tourist travel to the continent. It seeks to broaden understanding of how visits to Antarctica are managed by a global community of actors who share an interest in that continent’s physical environment. Such policy management requires the integration of governmental outputs in the form of subnational management activities, multilateral cooperation under the Antarctic Treaty System umbrella, and contributions from nongovernmental organizations and the private sector. The chapter concludes that creation of a comprehensive mandatory Polar Code specific to Antarctica is a natural, and much-needed, extension of this management process.
