Abstract [en]

Recent decades have notably been characterized by transitions entailing sometimes dramatic and rapid change for communities, politics, economies, and environments. Furthermore, these transitions, which can be understood as event-driven rapid changes, require comprehensive adaptation to new economic, social, political, cultural or environmental circumstances that are outcomes of transitions. This introductory chapter discusses the relationship between transition and tourism. Hence tourism is seen as a vehicle for transition, an integrated part of transitions, and as consequence of transition. In this context, transitions are seen as changes within the economy, politics, and environment requiring comprehensive adaptation to new circumstances. This can result in a development introducing tourism as a solution, or a sector to be abandoned. Moreover, transitions may also occur within tourism. Finally, the role of geographical and temporal scale further affects transitions and how society and industry react.
