Presented by Gössling (Department of Service Management, Lund U., Sweden), the studies take into account local actors such as villagers, tourists, tourist workers, and police; national political and economic actors; and international actors, including the World Trade Organization, nongovernmental organizations, and airline and hotel corporations.
