Tourism and migration : new relationships between production and consumption by Colin Michael Hall( Book )

10 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book makes an innovative contribution to understanding the relationships between two of the most significant social and economic phenomena of contemporary society: tourism and migration. This has hitherto been a largely neglected field of research but there is now burgeoning interest in the subject amongst both tourism and population geographers, and a realisation of their shared interests in the changing forms of circulation and temporary mobility, and the increasingly evident impact of economic and cultural globalisation in producing new forms of leisure, working, and retirement lives. In this volume the editors have brought together a number of distinguished contributors from many different parts of the world to explore the many different forms of tourism-migration relationships, paying attention to both the global processes of change and the contingencies of place and space. The book provides an extensive guide to the relevant literature as well as case studies from countries as diverse as Australia, Hungary, Israel, New Zealand, Spain, Sweden, and the United States and discussions of the significance of the Caribbean, Chinese, and Vietnamese diasporas for tourism and migration relationships
Tourism and innovation by Colin Michael Hall( Book )

16 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a timely book placing tourism innovation in the context of current academic and policy concerns relating to knowledge, competition and the management of change. An introductory chapter describes how innovation in tourism is both distinctive from and similar to innovation in other sectors. This is followed by three chapters that explore how competition drives tourism innovation, how knowledge transfers and creation lead the process, and how institutions shape innovation. These provide a coherent theoretical framework for understanding the roles of different agencies in innovation, ranging from the state, to firms, and consumers. The next four chapters analyse innovation at different scales, reviewing the territorial dimensions of innovation through the fresh perspectives of national and regional innovation systems, as well as the determinants of innovation in the tourism firm, and the contested and complex role of entrepreneurship. The final chapter summarises the importance of understanding tourism innovation." "This volume provides an accessible introduction to a key but neglected topic. A clear conceptual framework is complemented by numerous illustrative international case studies. This book will be useful guide for researchers and students of tourism studies, management and business, geography and regional studies."--BOOK JACKET
International migration and knowledge by Allan M Williams( Book )

9 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two unconnected but important recent academic and policy debates have focussed on the idea of the knowledge-based economy and the economic consequences of increasing international migration. This book challenges pre-conceived views on the debates and argues the need to understand that all migrants are potentially knowledge carriers and learners, and that they play an essential role in the globalization of knowledge transactions. Deconstructing the concept of knowledge, and demonstrating how tacit knowledge is in fact an amalgam of encultured and embrained/embodied forms of knowledge this book considers how international migration has profound consequences, analysed, first, in terms of the economic and immigration strategies of national and regional bodies. And, secondly, the authors explore how the "diversity dividend" of migration is captured by firms through their management strategies, and by individuals through increasingly boundaryless careers, continuous learning and transnational working lives. This research is a highly original contribution which provides the first overview of one of the most dynamic forces for change in the globalising economy. It will challenge migration researchers and students to engage with the management and learning literatures, and it will challenge management and economic policy analysts to think through the role of international migration. As such it will contribute to teaching and research in a range of social science disciplines, as well as to those involved in policy arenas ensuring that firms and all migrants engage in mutual learning and knowledge sharing. -- Publisher description from (Sep. 30, 2011)
