Volume 35

Glocalization of the Tourism Industry
The tourism industry of today is shaped by Anglo-Western world, a trend which has suppressed the distinctiveness of local peoples and destinations. The host cultures, languages, and practices are often silenced, with diversity and creativity discouraged. This globalization process is driven mainly by the formal sector in tourism, but about 60% of hospitality/tourism businesses are in the informal sector. Without recognizing their resources and involvement in tourism, how can the national importance and function of the industry be assessed? How can tourism provide authentic experiences in this globalized industry? How can tourism continue playing its peacemaking role in our global village? Having this in mind, further to our former webinar in Turkish (see Volume 19 – SCOT Webinars), we have decided to host another panel on the glocalization of tourism in English to reach the wider international community. This webinar discusses the ambivalence of locality/informality in the tourism industry and suggests the way forward.
