Centre for Tourism Policy Studies (CENTOPS)
Tourism with its multiple services, places and spaces creates a huge variety of business opportunities and experiences. The temporal and spatial elements invoked highlight the complexity of interactions between local, national and transnational cultures.
These shifting, granular patterns emphasise the need to see tourism not only as economic enterprise but also as part of a wider social phenomenon. We see our role as bringing new insights and understanding about the ways in which tourism is changing our lives.
Predicated on the growing acknowledgement that natural and cultural environments are finite resources, CENTOPS was founded in 2001 to undertake empirical, reflective and applied research into the links between Tourism, Society and Culture.
CLIMATE CHANGE IS REAL - IT'S TIME TO BE ACTIVE!
