    Working towards sincere encounters in volunteer tourism: an ethnographic examination of key management issues at a Nordic eco-village2017In: Journal of Sustainable Tourism, ISSN 0966-9582, E-ISSN 1747-7646, Vol. 25, no 11, p. 1617-1632Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores host–guest dynamics at Sólheimar eco-village, Iceland tocontribute to the conceptualization of transformative learning in volunteertourism. At the eco-village, the host and volunteers come together to sharesimilar goals and meaningful experiences. This interaction gets complicated,however: the eco-village exists within the global capitalist system and mustoperate using market norms. The idealist and educational expectations ofthe volunteers often clash with the practical short-term goals of thecommunity: there are also cultural and experiential differences between theparties. This clash is used to discuss the importance of sincerity in volunteertourism at the eco-village. Data were collected through fieldwork, primarilyincluding participant observations and interviews, to help interpret thepatterns of behaviors and perceptions of both parties in relation to the aim.Ultimately, the experience that binds host and guests cannot solely beabout learning to do things alternatively and sustainably; it requiressincerity, using Taylor’s 2001 sincerity concept, to tackle the difficulties inworking alternatively and sustainably to attain this experience. It is arguedthat transformative learning during the volunteer experience in alternativespaces should be conceptualized to include the promotion of sincereencounters, and adjusted to concern both the host and its guests.

    Contextualizing the complexities of managing alternative tourism at the community-level: A case study of a nordic eco-village2017In: Tourism Management, ISSN 0261-5177, E-ISSN 1879-3193, Vol. 60, no June, p. 348-356Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    To shed light on the complexities of fostering sustainability through alternative tourism, we explore the managerial contradictions and difficulties that arise as alternative tourism is developed in the name of sustainability at Sólheimar eco-village in Iceland. Following a focused ethnographic approach, we establish that those behind the management of volunteers, students and other guests regularly struggle to coordinate these respective groups in a manner that balances economic objectives with those relating to the environment and social equity. This is because limited human resources and strategic knowledge exist to fulfill all the host community’s goals through alternative tourism. The findings reveal the need to conceptualize alternative tourism as a forum for discussion between host and guest over the complexities of generating sustainable development.  This highlights the need for knowledge transmission over matters such as conflict resolution, critical reflection and cultural communication associated with the tourist experience at the community.

    Dwelling and tourism: Embracing the non-representational in the tourist landscape2018In: Landscape research, ISSN 0142-6397, E-ISSN 1469-9710Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The dwelling perspective outlines that landscapes are the product ofembodied actions and practices. Landscape scholars studying tourismand tourism scholars studying landscapes have neglected to apply thisperspective to local realities. Tourism most often represents an activity tointegrate to the landscape, rather than a complex socio-spatial phenomenon.When embodiments are studied, it is generally to speak of thetourist experience. I propose using the dwelling perspective to infusetourist landscapes with the non-representational ethos of materiality andembodiment. My proposition acknowledges the socio-cultural complexitiesthat the tourist system imposes on local people, and addresseslandscape as a material realm where there is constant interplay betweenlocalised practices and tourism dynamics. This perspective centres scientificconversations on the complex, yet mundane, experience of inhabitingtourist landscapes. Scholars should consider the impacts of tourismon living spaces as they contribute to the formation of language influencingplanners and politicians.

    Understanding the Travel Behavior of Generation Y2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    ABSTRACT

    This paper studies the travel patterns and motivations of Generation Y

    members living in Sweden and in Finland. The research is made from Generation Y

    members’ point of view. Earlier studies have discussed Generation Y’s travel

    behavior, but no research was found studying the differences between the age groups

    inside the Generation Y. As the Generation Y is a big generation group, it is important

    to notice the possible differences within this group. This research aims to find out the

    possible differences between the young and the older members of the generation. The

    purpose of the study is to contribute to the understanding of Generation Y’s travel

    behavior, which is important to understand for tourism planning, as the younger part

    of the generation will enter the tourism markets in the near future. The research is a

    quantitative study, testing a hypothesis that there are differences in the travel behavior

    between the younger and the older members of Generation Y. An electronic survey

    was sent to various persons, using social media as a tool for reaching the target group

    for data collection. The survey was done using a SoGo online survey tool. Collected

    data was moved into an SPSS for analyzing. The results indicated that there was no

    significant differences found between the two age groups. However the results show

    the Generation Y respondents’ motivation, values, expectations, experiences and

    attitudes towards travelling. The results will help in understanding Generation Y’s

    travel behavior, and help examine and define the potential differences in this

    generation group. For future work, the findings of this research could be compared

    with qualitative research, made by interviewing tourism professionals and Generation

    Y members.

    An intergrative model (iModel) for decision-making in tourism2018In: Tourism Planning & Development, ISSN 2156-8316, E-ISSN 2156-8324Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article contributes to the conceptual and methodological strengthening of the study of tourism as a complex phenomenon using systems thinking. It is aimed at supporting decision-making for tourist destinations’ planning and management. Few authors provide a schematic model of how tourism works, and among them, even fewer expressly use a systemic approach. However, nobody presents a methodology for their models’ analytical application to bridge theory and practice. The integrative model (iModel) fills this gap. It is developed through a review of previous models, research in Belgian, German and Ecuadorian cases, discussion in experts’ panels and supported by a long experience in destination development in Ecuador. Main contributions are 1) the introduction of a model of tourism as a dynamic complex system based on the functions performed by the actors involved in the tourism experience; and 2) the presentation of a methodology to apply the model-as-a-tool for decision-making support in tourism practice.

    Assessing Risk Factors Of Business Failure In The Manufacturing Sector: A Count Data Approach From Sweden2015In: International Journal of Economics, Commerce and Management, ISSN 2348-0386, Vol. III, no 9, p. 42-62Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

    The paper investigates risk factors of business failure of small-sized manufacturing firms in Sweden. Traditionally, linear models are applied to estimate the influence of risk factors on business failure by using continuous data. By contrast, in this study a count data approach is employed to deduce consistent Poisson, Quasi-Poisson, and Negative-Binomial estimators by using bankruptcy count data of small-sized Swedish manufacturing firms. Findings confirm that interest and exchange rates are significant determinants of business failure. Moreover, we found that openness is a determinant of business success. Our main finding highlights the role of business productivity, which turned out to be the main risk factor of business failure.

    Utilizing Culture and Creativity for Sustainable Development: Reflections on the City of Östersund’s Membership in the UNESCO Creative Cities Network2018In: New Metropolitan Perspectives: Local Knowledge and Innovation Dynamics Towards Territory Attractiveness Through the Implementation of Horizon/E2020/Agenda2030 – Volume 2 / [ed] Francesco Calabrò, Lucia Della Spina, Carmelina Bevilacqua, Cham: Springer, 2018, Vol. 101, p. 398-405Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Within the last few years, cities around the world have promoted creativity as a new resource for driving future development. As a result, a number of networks have emerged around this theme. The UNESCO Creative Cities Network (UCCN) is one such network that attempts to use creativity as a mechanism to achieve sustainable growth and development. The network has grown rapidly since its inception in 2004 and now has 180 members worldwide, all of which have adopted the UCCN guidelines and directives. In this paper, the authors explore if and how cities use their membership to implement sustainable development goals. The paper uses the northern Swedish city of Östersund as a case study, which has been an active member of the UCCN since 2010. Study findings indicate that membership in the UCCN has enabled Östersund to advance sustainability discourse at a regional level, as well as improve practice in a limited sense. At the same time, findings also identify a number of challenges for integrating sustainability objectives into the UCCN.

    Abstract [en]

    ABSTRACT

    This Master’s thesis examines the relationship between social business and tourism in terms of social and economic empowerment of communities, as well as promoting grass-roots level Arab-Israeli partnership and coexistence. The study is conducted at two innova-tive sites in unprivileged Arab communities in Israel, where social tourism entrepreneurs are currently operating guesthouse tourism as a tool for developing the community. The qualitative study uses an exploratory research design to reflect upon the dynamics between social tourism entrepreneurship, participation in community-based development, individual social and economic empowerment, and peace-fostering.

    The Influence of Social Entrepreneurship in Tourism on an Arab Village in Israel2017In: Social Entrepreneurship and Tourism: Philosophy and Practice / [ed] Sheldon, Pauline J., Daniele, Roberto, Cham: Springer, 2017, p. 279-293Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter explores how social entrepreneurship in tourism can convey societal benefits in an underserved Arab community in Israel. This analysis draws from three theoretical perspectives (i) social sustainability, (ii) theories associated with tourism, development, and economic empowerment, and (iii) the growing body of scholarship on tourism and peace-building efforts, and also includes an empirical case study situated in the Israeli village of Jisr-az Zarqa. The study focuses on the development of the village’s first commercial guest house, which is operated through a special Arab-Jewish partnership. This study employed qualitative research methods such as participant observation and in-depth, open-ended interviews. Findings revealed three categories associated with the influence of social entrepreneurship in tourism in Jisr az-Zarqa. The first category is largely descriptive and identifies the barriers to tourism development in the village. The second category analyzes the role of social entrepreneurship in tourism through the special Arab-Jewish business partnership that operates the guesthouse. The third category offers insights into the impacts associated with Jisr az-Zarq’s first commercial guesthouse.

    Obstacles to achieving cross-border tourism governance: A multi-scalar approach focusing on the German-Czech borderlands2017In: Annals of Tourism Research, ISSN 0160-7383, E-ISSN 1873-7722, Vol. 64, p. 126-138Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper aims to identify distinctive obstacles to the establishment of tourism destination governance in both transnational and within-country borderlands. Analysis of the German-Czech borderlands, a region also incorporating within-country borders between three German federal states, indicates the multi-scalar and political contestations of cross-border tourism collaboration. Local tourism projects are generally successful, both on a transnational German-Czech level and between the German states of Bavaria, Saxony and Thuringia. However, structural cross-border destination management does not exist because of (transnational) multi-scalar institutional alignment problems and (internal) tourism-specific destination-level power contestations. Understanding destination management processes in borderlands, therefore, requires: (i) explicit multi-scalar analysis; (ii) recognition of both transnational and within-country contexts; (iii) more cross-pollination between tourism planning and cross-border governance research.

    Märkesevenemangs samspel med besökar-kulturer: En utforskande fallstudie av Storsjöyran och målgruppen unga vuxna2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Sammanfattning

    Upplevelser har genom åren blivit en allt viktigare del i dagens konsumtionssamhälle. Ett varierat utbud av upplevelser har därför blivit ett större krav hos producenter då dessa måste matcha flera olika målgrupper med varierande efterfrågan. Läran om att förstå hur människor väljer att konsumera kallas för konsumentbeteende som främst styrs av människors olika kulturer och personligheter. Detta är någonting som står för avgörandet för vilket slags evenemang individen väljer att besöka, d.v.s. ett evenemang som tillfredsställer besökarens grundläggande behov. Upplevelseekonomi är ett resultat av en förändring hos konsumenters efterfrågan som gått från att en gång till största del bestått av varor och tjänster, till att idag till stor del istället bestå av upplevelser. Evenemang kan bidra med olika former av upplevelser och är någonting som kan bidra till människors identitetsskapande. Därför är det i denna studie intressant att undersöka hur dessa påverkar ungdomar mellan 17-25 år som är på väg in i vuxenlivet då denna period av dess liv har stor betydelse vid sökandet efter sig själv och utformandet av sina grundvärderingar som kommer finnas kvar under hela deras liv. För att tydliggöra dessa kopplingar kommer denna studie fokusera på att beskriva sambandet mellan kultur, konsumentbeteende och valet av evenemang tillsammans med en grupp unga besökares åsikter till det årliga återkommande evenemanget Storsjöyran i Östersund.

    Vindkraftverks effekter på turism i fjällmiljö: Fokus på vindkraftparken på Glötesvålen2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Sammanfattning

    Under sommaren 2014 kommer de första vindkraftverken på Glötesvålen att sättas upp och en park bestående av 30 vindkraftverk beräknas vara klar senare under hösten samma år. Denna park kommer ligga i ett område med en stor besöksnäring som är beroende av att turister finner området som ett attraktivt besöksmål. Syftet med denna uppsats är att ta reda på vilka effekter turismnäringen ser av denna byggnation, hur turisterna kan tänkas reagera på denna samt om det finns skillnader mellan näring och besökare i denna fråga. Uppsatsen baseras på kvalitativa intervjuer med turistnäringen i området samt en kvantitativ enkätundersökning bland besökare. Studier som behandlar en likartad problematik används som referenser och källor i jämförelse med de egna resultaten.

    Delar av turistnärigen i området är oroliga över att en vindkraftpark kommer att leda till ett minskat besöksantal i området på grund av att området inte längre kommer uppfattas som lika genuint och opåverkat. Besökarnas inställning till vindkraftverk i området är inte fullt lika negativ som de andra studierna visar att de borde vara, vilken kan visa på att effekterna i området som helhet är något överdrivna. Däremot kan de fortfarande slå hårt mot den enskilde turistföretagaren.

    Walking on the Shoulders of Giants: Historical Mountain Trails as Management Tools?2017In: The Routledge International Handbook of Walking Studies / [ed] C. M. Hall, Y. Ram, N. Shoval, New York: Routledge, 2017, p. 330-339Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Walking in mountains is a way of transport in varied terrain and a means to enhance nature experiences and deepen landscape relations. It is also one of the most popular activities in Swedish outdoor life as well as among international tourists. Mobility has over time and for multiple reasons resulted in a network of trails and pathways – a ‘mobility heritage’. However, this heritage is not static but continuously transformed through new needs and uses, and as such it is a vital component in any reform towards a more sustainable landscape management by and for governing bodies, NGOs, and other interest groups.

     

    Despite multiple users and uses, trails are often discrete, small-scale and with marginal direct effects on local ecology and landscape, although exceptions also exist. However, the long history of multiple actor use of trails and landscapes alongside them, and the reasons and interests behind their location and maintenance, has profoundly affected landscape perceptions over time.

     

    We argue that trails can be used as a tool to engage different interests and to minimize conflicts between different users, while aiming to enhance landscape values for all users. This is highly relevant to various forms of nature conservation, Sami reindeer herding, recreation and tourism. We aim to provide deeper knowledge about trails, conceptually and about their roles, functions, and how this may relate to future management. Against a background of theoretical, historical and empirical approaches to pathways and walking we present our topic through the lens of Swedish mountain trails, with a special focus on Jämtland County. Can the interests of visiting hikers and multiple local and regional interests come to co-exist in a sustainable way by using trails as one main tool?

    Developing edu-tourism in an urban indigenous community: The case of Aldeia Bananal (Brasília - DF - Brazil)2018In: International Journal of Tourism Anthropology, ISSN 1759-0442, E-ISSN 1759-0450, Vol. 6, no 2, p. 133-153Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The indigenous tourism project developed at Aldeia Bananal, a community located in Brasília, Brazil, and composed of three ethnic Indian groups - Kariri-Xokó, Tuxá and Fulni-ô - was combined with educational tourism by bringing tourism graduation students to visit the community. The theory is mainly based on the concepts of staged authenticity for community empowerment, geotourism and ambience generation. It was applied the ethnographic method, which aimed at preparing and evaluating the visit in an indigenous context. Some conclusions taken for the community side were that they were at all times very positive towards the research; they spread their culture in a tense political moment - due to the pressure of real estate capital - and enhanced their cultural heritage, although not so much the environmental aspect. For the students the project created a unique contact with the indigenous group which led to a higher knowledge and valorisation of their culture.

    Där barn inte får vara barn – Barnsexturismens spridning i tid och rum Where children are not allowed to be children2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Sammanfattning:

    Denna uppsats handlar om barnsexturism och hur spridningen ser ut världen över. Uppsatsen tar upp ett känsligt ämne, barnsexhandel där barnsexturism ingår. Barnsexturism innefattar när en person reser från ett land till ett annat för att begå övergrepp mot barn mot ersättning som går till barnen själva eller till någon annan. Barnsexturister kallas de personer som begår dessa brott mot barn och en barnsexturist kan vara vem som helst. En barnsexturist kan innan resan ha som syfte att ha sex med en minderårig. Studien upplyser även de faktorer som ligger bakom barnsexturismen och hur den geografiska spridningen ser ut världen över. Studien har visat på ett resultat där barn blir utsatta för barnsexturism i utsatta regioner. Det har även visat på att media måste ta större ansvar för att berätta för allmänheten om detta fenomen.

    Exploring the importance of categories in contemporary conservation debates: the case of a proposed national park in the Swedish mountain region.2015In: Nordic environmental social science conference 2015: Contested natures - new strategies, ideas and dialogues?, 2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Alongside ‘wilderness’ the category ‘national park’ is one of the most powerful within nature conservation, and it in turn rests on a historical legacy of numerous and varied categories. Recent critique against conventional approaches to conservation has resulted in a shift towards more public participation and the inclusion of local development – at least in policy rhetoric. However, our research on a proposed new national park in the Swedish mountains (Jämtland County) shows how difficult it is to change rooted understandings of existing categories, such as ‘national park’.

     

    The proposed park is perceived differently by different stakeholders, there exists tension and mistrust between them, and the park is contested for several reasons. Here categories and categorisation are important. Categories create paradoxes that may lead to tension and conflict, and they often act to block change in thinking and practice. These effects can occur when a piece of land belongs to different categories, when a category remains static while the local context changes, when the material and immaterial ‘components inherent in landscapes are categorised differently by different users, and when they use the same category it may be attributed different values. A lack of awareness of this impedes novel solutions and potential trade-offs. This is equally relevant at the interface of science and policy, science and public, policy and public – and at the interface of these and the landscape. A critical analysis of how categories are formed, by whom, and their effects, are important for understanding and moving beyond conflicts in conservation.

    Does Geography Matter in All-Inclusive Resort Tourism?: A case study of Scandinavian tour operators.2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    During last decade, there has been a noticeable increase in demand towards all-inclusive package holidays. The growth in demand for all-inclusive holidays goes hand in hand with the concept of tourism enclaves, which can either be purpose-built gated resorts physically isolated from their surrounding community or appear in the form of cruises, which has emerged as a particularly popular form of travel. In this paper, we focus on all-inclusive holidays, which take place in enclaves and investigate to what extent the geographic contingency governing this holiday product matters to the travel industry itself and the consumers who demand it. In other words, when it comes to all-inclusive holiday products do the place-based attributes on offer at the destination matter? An explorative study of Scandinavian tour operators shows that the local setting of the holiday is in fact a secondary consideration compared to the services and facilities on offer. Thus there is an overriding tendency to downplay the destination’s place–based attributes and it does not seem so important where the all-inclusive resort is located as long as it is well connected to the market and promises a comfortable holiday to the consumer. Tourism enclaves in the context of placelessness are discussed.

    Hållbar turism: Lokal delaktighet och samverkan i glesbygd2014Other (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Forskning har tydligt påvisat betydelsen av relationer och samarbeten i turism för att uppnå hållbarhet och konkurrenskraft. Turism baserat på glesbygdens naturresurser har på senare år tydligt lyfts fram i olika utvecklingsstrategiska - och policydokument såväl lokalt, regionalt som nationellt. I detta faktablad samlas forskningsresultat från ett antal olika fallstudier som belyser hållbar turism och samverkan. Särskilt fokus läggs på studier kring utmaningar med den Europeiska landskapskonventionen, hur myndigheter samverkar i markfrågor, vem som tar det lokala ansvaret för hållbar turismutveckling och hur turismsamarbeten över kommun-, läns-, region- och riksgränser kan se ut.

    Intressemotsättningar och utmaningar i multifunktionella landskap: studier kring buller, vindkraft och naturskydd i Jämtlandsfjällen2016Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Fjällen används i samband med en mängd olika aktiviteter, som i sin tur hela tiden förändras och utvecklas. I fjällen ska många olika hänsyn tas och inte sällan uppstår målkonflikter mellan olika värden, upplevelser och intressen. Det kan exempelvis uppstå konflikter mellan friluftsliv, rennäring, naturbevarande och energiproduktion eller mellan grupper av friluftslivsaktiviteter. I denna rapport redovisar vi resultaten från ett forskningsprojekt där vi har undersökt hur svenska aktörer med olika intressen i mark- och resursanvändning upplever olika konflikter, orsaker bakom konflikter och vilka möjligheter som finns att komma bortom konflikter i planering, skötsel och användning av fjällområden. Konflikter mellan olika aktörer har en negativ påverkan på utveckling och förvaltning, vilket går emot de uttalade syftena med det nationella miljömålet Storslagna fjäll om att värna sociala och ekologiska värden.

    Past, present and future transportation to peripheral recreational and protected areas in Sweden2013In: The Association of American Geographers Annual Meeting, AAG, 2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A long-term close relationship exists between national parks and tourism travel although goals, motives, needs, and attitudes shift through time. We discuss both completed and ongoing work analyzing tourist transportation to and within protected areas in the Swedish mountains by examining early access to national parks, changing tourist attitudes toward infrastructure and transportation, and future alternative transportation systems. A literature review shows tourism and railways were essential in establishing national parks in the early twentieth century, while similarities and differences were found between Sweden's park history and that of other countries. The themes of natural landscapes and wilderness remain common in environmental politics despite the onset of changes to meet other demands. Recent studies show increased importance of infrastructure and facilities for park visitors. Longitudinal data from protected areas in northern Sweden reveal that accessibility (trails, busses and flight connections) and facilities are increasingly important for back-country hikers. Furthermore, the study indicates growing acceptance of helicopter traffic and road construction even within protected areas themselves. Contemporary protected area and park policy are often encouraged to contribute to regional development; to attract tourists these areas face a challenge to meet the demand of easy access and high quality conveniences, and at the same time protect environmental values. We discuss possible implications of the changes found and future initiatives including more environment-friendly transportation practices to and within recreational and protected areas.

    Does Geography Matter in All-Inclusive Resort Tourism?: An investigation of the marketing approach of major Scandinavian Tour operators2017In: Tourism Geographies, ISSN 1461-6688, E-ISSN 1470-1340Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Over the last decade, there has been noticeable rise in popularity of all-inclusive holidays. This growth has coincided with the propensity in many destinations to develop tourism enclaves, which can either be purpose-built gated resorts physically isolated from their surrounding community or appear in the form of cruises, which have emerged as a particularly popular form of travel. In this explorative paper, we focus on the marketing of all-inclusive holidays, specifically those occurring in enclaves (including cruise-ships). We investigate to what extent the geographic location of the tourist enclave is an important consideration for the travel industry. In other words, when it comes to all-inclusive holiday products, do the place-based attributes on offer at the destination and the actual location of the holiday matter from the perspective of those who are creating and selling the travel packet? An explorative study of Scandinavian tour operators shows that the local settingof the holiday is in fact a secondary consideration compared to the services and facilities on offer. Thus, there is an overriding tendency to downplay the destination’s place-based attributes and it does not seem so important where the all-inclusive resort is located as long as it is well connected to the market and promises a comfortable holiday to the consumer. Tourism enclaves in the context of placelessness are discussed.
