Tourism, Ethnic Diversity and the City

This book analyses the manifestations of ethnic diversity as commodified by immigrants and asks how these expressions of culture can be transformed into a vehicle for socio-economic development, to the advantage of both immigrants and the city at large. By addressing this problematic from an interdisciplinary and comparative perspective, this book seeks a more thorough understanding of the structural dynamics of immigrant activity in the tourist economy. The primary focus is on the role of immigrant entrepreneurs and workers in the emerging tourist industry and on their interaction with other players in the industry. The relative roles of public, private and civil society actors are important points of emphasis. Cases are drawn from several advanced economies in Europe, North America and Australia.
