Modules

This module primarily focuses on the formulation of tourism policy and critically analyses the relationship between policy and the development of tourism in UK and international contexts. It considers the policy making process, the frameworks in which policymaking takes place, the various actor groups involved in the process, power relations, and other key influences on policy decision-making. Further, this module examines the ways in which governments achieve their policy aims and the extent to which they are successfully implemented. Students will reflect on and critically examine policies that shape the role and functions of the tourism industry. The module takes a national and international perspective, drawing on case studies from both developed and developing countries, to explore the ways in which tourism is governed and its impact on development.
