, released on 4 th March, comes only days after it received a complaint from Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC) about another IGTO publication called Taste of Israel.
"The following year, IGTO adverts in UK national newspapers , which implied that East Jerusalem is part of Israel, were also banned by ASA."
Ms Colborne added: "Despite all these rulings by ASA, the IGTO continues to use false advertising in its tourist promotions.
Statist Characteristics of Nation-States and IGTO Participation
Our study does not negate that nation-states' IGTO participation is affected by their level of economic and technological development, as the functional-realist perspective suggests.
In Appendix 2, Figures 1-3 show the mean number of IGTO memberships for nation-states by region (in 1970 and 1990), by colonial history, and by age (established before and after 1945) respectively.
Figures 4 and 5 in Appendix 2 show the negative relationship between nation-states' economic openness and their IGTO participation.
Newly independent nation states are more susceptible to IGTO participation because they are more concerned with their legitimate standing in the world polity than the old established nation states and hence are more active in embracing the worldwide participatory model for nation-states.
