New Issues in Polar Tourism: Conclusion
2013 (English)In: New Issues in Polar Tourism: Communities, Environments, Politics / [ed] Müller, D.K., Lundmark, L. & Lemelin, R.H., Dordrecht: Springer Science+Business Media B.V., 2013, 217-220 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Although the goal of this book was not to pursue a distinct research question but rather illustrate the multitude of thematic issues that are currently being investigated in the polar Norths, two topics: the governance of ecological resources, and the ways in which polar communities manage to create agency through various development strategies emerged throughout the book. In-order to illustrate this agency, the content of this book has been divided into three parts: Conceptualizing Polar Tourism and Polar Regions, Politics and the Environment and Business and Community Perspectives thus without a separation between Arctic and Antarctic research. In this concluding chapter a summary of the issues in polar tourism highlighted in this book is made and a comment on the current state of the research field is offered, with some suggestions for future research.
