New Publications: Tourism Planning and Organisation Systems

Prof. Dimitrios Buhalis has co-authored two new books on Tourism Planning

Costa, C., Panyik, E., Buhalis, D., 2013 European Tourism Planning and Organisation Systems: The EU Member States, Channel View Publications, Bristol  

This book provides a systematic, country-by-country analysis of tourism policy, planning and organisation in the EU. Its main objective is to explore 21st century policy responses to the global challenges shaping tourism planning and organisation systems in the EU. The book offers a new critical approach to comparative policy analysis of EU member states and focuses on six key themes: territory, actors and structures, economics, policy, methods and techniques and vision. The book is designed primarily for undergraduate and postgraduate tourism students and researchers. The book will also be useful for industry practitioners who would like to engage in the theoretical principles and the conceptualisation of planning and organisation systems.

Costa, C., Panyik, E., Buhalis, D., 2013 Trends in European Tourism Planning and Organisation, Channel View Publications, Bristol 

Written by leading international tourism researchers, this book examines the key trends in European tourism planning and organisation. It introduces a theoretical framework to tourism planning and organisation using a procedural and structural approach. Despite having a European focus, it is globally relevant as many lessons from Europe can be applied to international tourism development. The book identifies and discusses six key themes in the context of European tourism planning and organisation: territory, actors and structures, economics, policy, methods and techniques and vision. It also identifies leading and emerging practices and offers a new vision for European tourism planning.
