Abstract

The reporting of wars, terror attacks and natural catastrophes has a strong influence on the image which tourists perceive of the threat to their personal security. This may cause a widespread refusal to travel into the specific area where a crisis of the tourist industry will be the result. As a consequence of increasing social distance between potential tourists and the affected areas and in combination with the neighbourhood effect, the perception of serious risks is transferred from the actually affected area to the whole region and promotes a growing tendency towards regionalisation of tourist demend. The paper asks if crises, wars and catastrophes are catalysts of a regionalisation of tourist demand. The paper asks if crises, wars and catastrophes are catalysts of a regionalisation in the global tourist industry. - (IfL)
