 Costa, C., Panyik, E., Buhalis, D., 2013 Trends in European Tourism Planning and Organisation,  Channel View Publications, ISBN:1845414101 Bristol   http://ow.ly/pLC6U 


Written by leading international tourism researchers, this book examines the key trends in European tourism planning and organisation. It introduces a theoretical framework to tourism planning and organisation using a procedural and structural approach. Despite having a European focus, it is globally relevant as many lessons from Europe can be applied to international tourism development. The book identifies and discusses six key themes in the context of European tourism planning and organisation: territory, actors and structures, economics, policy, methods and techniques and vision. It also identifies leading and emerging practices and offers a new vision for European tourism planning.

Review

This most interesting and timely book illuminates the complex destination of Europe and its need to adopt new structural approaches to tourism policy. World-renowned tourism experts provide multi-disciplinary knowledge to inform Europe's future tourism planning. It is essential reading for those wanting to understand the fascinating structural changes that EU tourism is undergoing. --Pauline J. Sheldon, University of Hawaii, USA

 

Costa, Panyik and Buhalis have provided a highly insightful edited exposition of European tourism planning in the context of the new global world order. From the impacts of the global financial crunch, the restructuring of European financial arrangements and the beginnings of a European tourism policy through the 2009 Lisbon Treaty, the book provides a holistic framework for understanding the complexity of developing and governing tourism across the European Union to create competitiveness for sustainable destination development. --Simon Darcy, University of Technology, Sydney, Australia
