Tourism, Image, and Fear of Crime

Martin Selby, Helen Selby, David Botterill

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


In this chapter we:
♦ Consider the interrelationships between tourist destinations, place image, crime and the fear of crime.
♦ Conduct a review and extend the orthodox view that there is a negative relationship between crime and tourism.
♦ Introduce Schutz’s ‘stock of knowledge’ as a way of understanding the relationship between tourist destination image and tourist behaviour.
♦ Provide examples that demonstrate the battleground of tourism destination image.
♦ Suggest a radical reconceptualisation of the crime/tourism nexus through a consideration of the ‘fear of crime’ concept.
