Abstract [en]

Following the paradigm shift in nature conservation policy towards the inclusion of local inhabitants in planning and management of protected areas, tourism is emphasized as a way to achieve economic development in peripheral areas. Governance issues and the real impacts from tourism on development are thus often under scrutiny. In this article, the focus is on the role of tourism in the political process of protected area designation. How does the inclusion of the tourism argument affect designation processes? What kind of tourism is being promoted and how can it be conceptualized with regard to human views of the use of nature? An ecostrategic framework is presented to illustrate the essential land use choices available. Three cases of protected area designation processes are used to address the issue of tourism; the failure of the Kiruna National Park proposal and the successfully implemented snowmobile regulation area in Funäsdalen and Fulufjället National Park. The analysis shows that tourism indeed may increase local acceptance of protected areas, but how powerful this argument is depends on contextual and process factors as well.
