Ethical Practices and Tourists’ Behavioral Intentions: The Case of European Potential Tourists

Recently, ethical tourism has been a research interest but not yet a mature marketing tool for tourist destinations. A decade ago, scholars began studying the effectiveness of ethical concerns in tourism as perceived by private organizations. This study attempts to examine tourists' behavioral intentions based on four dimensions of ethical tourism (tourists' rights, socio-economic concerns, environmental concerns, and cultural concerns). The study sample comprises 567 respondents, considered potential tourists from five European countries (Germany, the UK, France, Spain, and Italy). The study results showed a strong positive effect of tourists' rights on destination choice and willingness to pay more. For the socio-economic, environmental, and cultural concerns, moderate effect on the destination choice and willingness to pay more were found except for the effect of environmental concerns on the willingness to pay more. Theoretical and managerial implications were suggested based on the study findings.

The Role of Visitor Centers in Heritage Management: The Example of the Archaeological Site of Umm Qais, Jordan

This study explores the part that visitor centers at archaeological sites play in heritage and tourism management. A case study was conducted in Umm Qais-Jordan, to investigate how a visitor center performs its functions. According to the findings of the fieldwork, the visitor center at Umm Qais primarily operates in an administrative capacity and thus primarily performs clerical functions related to tourism rather than undertaking interpretation and heritage management.

Prioritizing Heritage Building Maintenance: A Fuzzy Model Approach for Arc De Berà, Spain

The" Art-Risk 3.0" research project has developed a new tool to address the challenges faced in maintaining and preserving cultural heritage. This tool aims to evaluate the functional operational age and life cycle of heritage buildings in the Arc de Berà area in Tarragona, Catalonia, Spain, with the goal of promoting preventive conservation through a multidisciplinary approach. The tool considers various factors that contribute to the condition of heritage buildings, including structural stability, material decay, environmental risks, and usage patterns. By employing a fuzzy model, it provides an assessment of the building's condition in historical sites. One of the key features of the Art-Risk tool is its ability to prioritize intervention among different case studies within a specific urban context. It generates three output results: vulnerability, risk, and functionality index. The vulnerability value indicates the level of vulnerability of a building, with lower values suggesting better structural stability and resilience against potential hazards. The risk value signifies the level of risk associated with a building, with lower values indicating a reduced likelihood of damage or deterioration. The functionality index reflects the operational condition and suitability of a building for its intended use, with higher values indicating better functionality and operational performance, by considering these diverse valuations, stakeholders and conservation plan managers can effectively establish priorities for intervention. Buildings with higher vulnerability, risk, or lower functionality index scores are given higher priority for intervention. This approach ensures that limited resources are …

Archaeological Sites’ Management, Interpretation, and Tourism Development—A Success Story and Future Challenges: The Case of Bibracte, France

Bibracte is described as a well-managed property with significant heritage value. Even as the site’s managing body and its partners continue to deliver encouraging and engaging projects, there are barriers to success. Thus, the primary purpose of this study was to identify and analyze the possible future challenges that the current management may encounter. This study used a field work methodology, and comprised interviews, observations, guided visits, discussions, discourse analysis, and the review of an important corpus of material, from which conclusions were drawn. Significant problems arising from various causes were identified. The results reveal that despite the appropriate heritage management, interpretation, and tourism development practices, the heritage and tourism potential remain not fully captured. The management of the site has established its notoriety as an important research center for experimental and educational archaeology, rather than as an important tourist attraction. Thus, the site has failed to become a popular tourist destination. These difficulties are said to have been molded and enforced by imperatives connected to the site and its surroundings, as well as the Réseau des Grands Sites de France title. This research may contribute to elucidating heritage sites and their unknown management difficulties, which will be beneficial to the sites’ employees and visitors.

Heritage management: Analytical study of tourism impacts on the archaeological site of Umm Qais—Jordan

The archaeological site of Umm Qais is a popular tourist destination for both local and foreign tourists who come to appreciate the site’s archaeological history, scenic landscape, and panoramic perspective. The site was the focus of tourism planning, which included the construction of amenities and infrastructure, the creation of tourist circuits, and archaeological management. This development was linked to a rise in visitor numbers as well as the provision of a high level of service, such as parking, tickets, kiosks, restaurants, and cafés, to welcome visitors. The purpose of this study was to examine the impacts of on-site tourist services and infrastructures, as well as those of visitors, and their geographical and temporal scope on the site. The study used a qualitative approach based on case study fieldwork as a research method to achieve this goal. Personal observation, interviews with site-related stakeholders, and a checklist were used to collect data during the fieldwork. Both tourism infrastructure and visitors were proven to have a detrimental influence on tourist attractions. The site’s aesthetic pollution and structural deterioration were caused by tourism services and infrastructure. Graffiti, vandalism, and trash left by visitors exerted strong negative impacts. Furthermore, spatial and temporal negative impacts were determined by the patterns of seasonal movement of visitors and the location of infrastructure. Thus, most of the impacts were concentrated in a small portion of the site, among the western theater, the panoramic view, and the traditional Ottoman village. This research sheds light on these challenges and makes recommendations in the …

Preservation vs. use: understanding tourism stakeholders’ value perceptions toward Petra Archaeological Park

Heritage sites are shared by several stakeholders with different values that leading multiple interpretations and uses. Tourism stakeholders play critical roles in developing and planning sustainable heritage tourism. However, little research has been conducted to investigate simultaneously their value perceptions toward heritage sites. Using Petra Archaeological Park as an example, this paper addresses the issue of the perception attached by tourism stakeholders towards archaeological park values. The results indicate that all stakeholders appreciate Petra to be preserved and kept for future generations. However, results show that residents and local business owners support the preservation of Petra not only for its heritage value but also for economic benefits, while tourists and government officials are more preservation oriented than use-oriented. This study generates useful and practical information for both …
