Argument

This number of the Revue Etudes Caribéennes, devoted to tourism, aims to lay the foundations of a reflection on the functioning tourist places, their development programs and the different challenges presented to them.

Exposed/Open or closed location, concentrated or diffused flows, the nature of these tourist places with their traditional or original customs, orientate different types of potential impacts. The choices made in tourism development are essential: in which conditions should be opted for the traditional seaside tourism, or for mass tourism, for alternative tourism? Are certain properties linked to specific territories? Should we oppose these two approaches or consider them as complementary in their respective environments and can they share the same place?

The objective of this thematic issue is to call for various and renewed approaches which develop analysis in terms of the economy, regional planning, sociology, geography etc. Articles may propose a theoretical reflection or focus on case studies, dealing with the relations of mass tourism, alternative tourism, or to illustrate one of these two aspects. Priorities fields will not exclusively be Caribbean and American but can come from any part of the world and can illustrate post and/or present situations.

The prioritized analysis will include:

1. The concepts of mass tourism and alternative tourism (identification, characteristics, spatial logics, and economic, social and environmental issues).

2. Places of mass tourism (resorts, historic cities, specific forms of site layout and reception facilities)

3. Alter-tourism and the renewal of tourism practices (ecotourism, community tourism, agrotourism)

4. The development of tourist spots and of management methods concerning protected environments (conservation, protection, tourism practices and recreational practices)

5. Economic, social, and environmental issues surrounding different types of tourist places.

The journal will accept original contributions in French, in English and Spanish.
