Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The tourism sector in many countries has grown significantly in recent decades and is now a major sector and a growth engine in many economies. Understanding the links between tourism, economics, and policy has been at the top of the research agenda. Given the relevance of these linkages, this Special Issue aims to explore theoretical and empirical issues on the effects of policy formulation on tourism development that have driven the attention of tourism agents and policymakers worldwide.

Suggested topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Aspects related to the influence of governance on tourism policies: political systems and tourism development; political interference in governance of tourism; government policies and destination management; political systems and destination image; the policy, planning, and development of tourism; form of government and tourism development; local, national, and regional tourism policies and planning;
  • Finance and tourism: financial activity and tourism development, investment and tourism facilities;
  • Effects of tourism policy initiatives or the lack thereof: tourism taxation, aviation and tourism issues, tourism and the environment (including climate change), and destination competitiveness, among other issues;
  • Economic effects of tourism: tourism demand and forecasting, tourism supply and pricing, measuring tourism's economic contribution, the impacts and benefits of changes in tourism demand; cost benefit analysis, the economic evaluation of special events, tourism investment and infrastructure, and the macroeconomic effects and management implications of tourism volatility.

The main aim of this article was to assess whether the level of competitiveness of accommodation facilities results from the level of safety and security provided to consumers of these services, measured by the number of security measures applied in them. The authors’ task was to examine the level of concentration of security measures in the accommodation facilities and to assess whether the quality of services measured by the star-rating system provided a higher level of safety and security for customers of the accommodation facilities, measured by the number of security measures applied in them. It was decided to examine whether the level of concentration of security measures at the accommodation facilities was treated by these entities as a factor of their competitiveness. Two locations in Central and Eastern Europe, one in Poland and one in Lithuania, were analyzed. The article calculated the frequency of these measures at the accommodation facilities by type of facility (according to the star-rating system) and type of security measure (as a weighted average) and their concentration using the Herfindahl–Hirscham Index. The results showed that the higher the quality of services provided (more stars), the higher the level of safety and security is ensured. It was also found that a higher level of security was not reflected in the prices of accommodation services. Full article
