Tourism in an era of migration: A case study with a focus on the impacts of a crisis, from a consumer perspective.
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
This thesis describes the relation between the tourism industry and crisis from a
consumer perspective. The impacts on consumers have been receiving little attention in
earlier tourism research. This study contains an empirical research with a focus on the
attitudes of travellers during the refugee crisis of 2015. The attitudes are seen as
interesting for this study since they can affect the traveller before, during and after the
trip. In this work the attitudes further are divided into four different sub-categories,
which were detected to be important in order to describe how the attitudes of travellers
can be affected from a crisis. The performed study shows that the attitudes can be
affected from a crisis in different ways. It also shows that the refugee crisis of 2015 had
impacts on travellers, that might vary from person to person and that they might not be
aware of themselves.
