Part of the Geographies of Tourism and Global Change book series (GTGC)


This chapter provides the theoretical and conceptual background of the book by presenting the state of research on borders and tourism and, especially, the factors that influence cross-border tourism. The chapter brings together established concepts of political geography, border studies, borders and tourism, and protected area tourism. Our literature review reveals, first, that tourism has not played an important role in border studies and, second, that our core research question is one that has not yet been adequately dealt with; that is, how do borders and related barriers influence visitation to protected areas located along, or near, borders? The chapter also contributes to the emerging topic of geographies of prejudice, which has not widely addressed issues related to tourism and recreation so far.
