Evolution and transformation in tourism destinations: Revitalisation through innovation?

An international workshop of the Regional Studies Association Research Network on Tourism and Regional Development, supported by the GLOBATUR project (CSO2011-23004/GEOG):


Rovira i Virgili University, Catalonia, Spain
10-13th February 2014

Organised by the Research Group on Territorial Analysis and Tourism Studies of the Department of Geography, Faculty of Tourism and Geography, Rovira i Virgili University

Call for Papers

This RSA research network workshop in Catalonia, Spain, aims to discuss the ways in which established tourism destinations might become spaces where social innovation and regional development progress through revitalisation, as well as how the development of global responsible tourism policies might be fostered in this process. Within the meeting programme / content, we would seek to:

* evaluate the role of revitalisation policies on the economic competitiveness of destinations;
* study the responses that these policies elicit when faced with the challenges of global change
* identify and evaluate potential impacts of the broader residential mobility associated with tourism activity.

Well-established tourism destinations are now tending to acquire new economic, social and cultural functions, whilst simultaneously turning into places for innovation and urban development. In turn, they are generating new opportunities for the regions where they are located, and even facing new risks derived from the dynamics of global change, making this a highly pertinent area for research. As such, this RSA network event also aims to place tourism destination revitalisation at the core of the debate on the effects of globalisation and its limitations at different scales.

Within this context, the RSA workshop welcomes paper presentations on tourism evolution and regional development topics, including:

•       Evolutionary approaches to tourism development and policy
•       Innovation, destination development and economic / spatial transformation processes
•       Destination governance (i.e. public-private partnerships, policy networks, destination management organisations, clusters and innovation systems)
•       Creativity as a transformative strategy
•       Political economy of tourism and regional development
•       Cultural approaches to tourism and regional development
•       The position of tourism in overall strategies and plans for local and regional development
•       Tourism destinations and attractiveness for new residents and new economic sub-sectors
•       Issues of scale and regional tourism planning
•       Cross-sector analyses: synergetic inter-linkages between tourism and related sectors, such as the creative industries, smart manufacturing and advanced services.

Papers are also invited on any other aspect of tourism and regional development.

The workshop is open to academic researchers and practitioners at any career stage with an interest in tourism and regional development. It is organised by GRATET (Research Group on Territorial Analysis and Tourism Studies) at the Faculty of Tourism and Geography of the Rovira i Virgili University, Catalonia and is partially supported by the GLOBALTUR project (funded by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness). The workshop will take place at the Vila-seca Campus of the Rovira i Virgili University beginning with the opening plenary late afternoon on Monday 10th February, and end at noon Wednesday 13th February.

This Catalonia workshop takes place in one of the major tourism regions on the Mediterranean coast – the Costa Daurada (45-60 minutes from Barcelona by train) – home to a number of major beach resorts (e.g. Salou, Cambrils, Vila-seca), historic cities (e.g. Tarragona, Reus, Tortosa), wine regions (e.g. Priorat, Montsant, Terra Alta, Tarragona, Penedčs, Conca de Barberŕ), artistic heritage towns (linked to Picasso, Miró, Gaudí and Pau Casals) and natural parks (e.g. the Ebre River Delta, Montsant, Ports).

Abstracts (300 words maximum) should be submitted to
