The coronavirus outbreak in late 2019 and the subsequent restrictions on mobility and physical contacts caused an extreme collapse of international tourism.

Since the 1970s, Australia and New Zealand have emerged as attractive destinations and are now firmly integrated in the international tourism industry. Yet there have been few if any explorations of this theme in the German-speaking academic literature. Written by international experts, this book makes a major contribution to understanding the uniq...
Chapter
Apart from displaying many facets of the ambiguous relationship of humans and animals, zoos and aquariums are also a significant part of the tourism industry. Their supposed goals are visitor education, visitor entertainment, species conservation and behavioural animal research. It seems therefore reasonable to describe those institutions as an ark...

Surprisingly, there is...

In general, the discussion on corporate social responsibility (CSR) is relatively new in Germany. It only gathered speed in the early 1990s for several reasons. Firstly, the question arose on how private actors could be involved in order to fill the gap left behind by the shrinking welfare system. Secondly, the rapidly progressing globalization pro...

Le secteur culturel est, de plus en plus souvent, appréhendé par les gouvernements comme un vecteur de croissance (touristique), notamment dans les sous-régions périphériques comme la Tasmanie où les industries dominantes de jadis ont disparu. Ce secteur peut être une source de créativité locale, d'intégration sociale et d'attractivité touristique....

As locals engage with a place more frequently than visitors, they are better placed to get an “insider's view” of reimaging and the forces that influence the process. Design/methodology/approach – A cas...
