Tourism and Migration: Exploring the Relationship between Two Global Phenomena
2010, 92 с.
Growth in migration and tourism are two of the most significant manifestations of globalisation. Migration makes important social and economic contributions to destination countries, culturally enriching their society, enhancing the tourism product and providing labour for the travel, tourism, hospitality and catering sectors. This UNWTO study seeks to explore the linkages between migration and tourism as an important baseline study in the investigation of opportunities resulting from the relationship between these two global phenomena. Case studies from selected countries from Europe, Asia and the Americas illustrate tendencies and indicate findings, which are the basis of recommendations.
