What motivates tourists to choose one destination over another and how does tourism impact those who live in tourist areas? As more parts of the world begin to reopen after the devastating health, social, and economic impacts they have suffered due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the time is right to consider the link between tourism competitiveness and human development. New research led by Rosen College's Associate Dean Dr. Robertico Croes, Dr. Jorge Ridderstaat and Dr. Valeriya Shapoval presents a new theory and typology.
