Call for contributions: Handbook on Tourism and Migration

NEWS The editors of the new Handbook on Tourism and Migration are calling out to researchers for contributions.

The editors of the new Handbook on Tourism and Migration, Linda Lundmark and Michael C. Hall, are calling out to researchers to contribute to the book.  You can contribute to one or more out of four main themes, and the deadline for a first abstract was 30 June, but has been extended to 31 July.

If you are interested in contributing to the Handbook on Tourism and Migration, please submit a title and short abstract (150 words) to Linda Lundmark, indicating which theme you would like to contribute to. All submissions should be in English.


The editors invite contributions to any of the following topics and themes:

Mobility, migration, and tourism consumption

In this theme, the demand side of migration and tourism is highlighted. The different motives and causes for a variety of mobilities are examined and the various patterns created by this are discussed. We invite contributions that for example discuss amenity migration in relation to tourism, second home tourism and links to migration, overall migration patterns and their inter- and intra-generational influences on tourism, life-course and generational perspectives on tourism and migration, and, tourism and diaspora.

The production of tourism (supply side)

Here the focus is on the supply side of tourism and migration. Thus, entrepreneurship, and how the tourism industry is connected to various migration and tourism flows becomes central. Chapters could include lifestyle entrepreneurship in tourism and the connection to migration, labour migration, e.g., snow bunnies, beach bums and similar, hospitality workers, urban tourism and migration as well as rural tourism and migration. 

The state and international regulation of tourism and migration

Regulations are important for tourism and migration in many ways. In this theme, the role of the state for tourism and migration is the point of departure for the discussion. The following topics are examples: tourism and working visas as enablers or disablers, retirement visas, international second home purchases, and regulation of second homes.

Emerging tourism and migration patterns: What lies ahead? 

This theme links current geopolitical developments, the experiences of covid-19 and global environmental change, e.g., climate change, and sustainability challenges to already emerging migration and mobility patterns to discuss the possible outcomes in the foreseeable future.

About the book

Handbook on Tourism and Migration 
Publisher: Edward Elgar 
Editors: C. Michael Hall, Ahurei Professor, University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand;
Linda Lundmark, Associate Professor, Department of Geography, Umeå University, Sweden 

This Handbook on Tourism and Migration covers important aspects of the mobility continuum between tourism and migration, from supply and demand side perspectives, as well as incorporating trends that will affect future mobilities. The ambition is to add to the known concepts related to tourism and migration research by relating to key aspects of sustainable development addressed from economic, social, political, and cultural vantage points and understandings, thus cutting across and critically assessing the complex nature of tourism and migration.
