Title

A Comprehensive Approach to Classifying Acts of Crime and Violence at Tourism Destinations and Analyzing their Differential Effects on Tourism Demand

Abstract

Based on a review of 300 cases of acts of crimes and violence that occurred at tourist destinations around the world in the last decade, a comprehensive typology was created. The objectives of this typology were to classify the attributes of acts of crime and violence, to analyze the differential effects that such attributes have on tourism demand, to examine the effectiveness of methods used for prevention and recovery from such acts, and to identify the parties responsible for prevention and recovery.
