Special Issue "Tourism Economics and Policy"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 29 August 2020.
Interests: financial econometrics; macroeconometrics; tourism; policy impacts
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.
