Title

The Social Impacts of Tourism

Abstract

The socio-cultural effects of tourism are difficult to measure, and to a large extent are indirect, or even unknown. Most studies up to now in this area have been mainly concerned with understanding the social impacts on the host societies rather than the impacts on the tourists themselves. In general, attitudes and perceptions of the host population vary on a continuous scale from negative, through no impact at all to positive. The aim of this article is to review the literature and research conducted on the impacts of tourism on host societies, to suggest a framework for their classification and finally to recommend some additional research.
