Chapter 6: Migration, tourism, and globalisation
Knowledge and risk, together with affect, constitute the two sides of the fulcrum in the complex inter-relationships between tourism and migration. This is understood in terms of three levels of analysis: the micro, meso and macro. The key to the individual or micro level is the interactoin between the analytic and the affective dimesnions of the dual system of knowing: specifically the accumulation of tacit knowledge, emotional experiences and images through tourism which informs migration decisions, or vice versa. The affect elment also plays a major role in the meso level, or VFR tourism which are woven around the globalized networks of migrants, but also become vehicles for further migration. Both these levels are framed by the macro level, constituted of structural and institutional factors, including technological changes, the regulation of migration and the creation of deeply embedded scapes which shape flows of people in context of globalization.
