Chapter 11: Tourism and (re)development in developed nations
While much of the research on tourism and development has focused on developing nations, this chapter calls for more research on the role of tourism in the (re)development process in developed nations. These countries have the advantage of advanced economies and rank higher on national development indicators, yet these can mask areas of high unemployment and poverty. The chapter begins by examining the nature of development, the importance of tourism in developed nations and redevelopment strategies. The second half of the chapter focuses on emerging challenges setting out a research agenda, based in part on Oritz (2017), including: overtourism and the emerging sharing economy; tourism growth, carbon emissions and the rise of the low-cost carrier; issues of just work and the changing nature of tourism employment; and poverty reduction and inclusive growth. With the continued expansion of tourism, additional research is needed on its contribution to development in developed nations.
