Each student will write a literature review on a tourism planning/policy topic of his or her choosing. The review should be developed incrementally over the semester through collaborative classroom discussions. Instructions: Select five industry peer reviewed journal articles (within the last ten years) addressing the chosen topic. Write a summary of each article and develop a comprehensive summary of all the articles relating how the information from the individual articles describes the current issue. See example of sample literature review posted on Blackboard. Length – The final paper length is expected to be 1,500-2,500 words, not including a title page or bibliography. Content and Structure – The paper should briefly introduce your chosen topic and clearly state a thesis/ abstract that describes the purpose or argument contained in your paper. You should very briefly (no more than 1 page) describe the topic as though it was being presented to peers who are mostly ignorant about the topic. The body of the paper should use tourism policy and planning analysis to critically think about one or more aspects of the topic. For example, you might discuss how place-specific physical landscape, political, economic, cultural and social variables are influencing factors; or elaborate on the lack of preparedness for crisis in tourism destinations. This might entail the use of maps/spatial analysis, quantitative data, analysis of current affairs, policy analysis, media critique, or anything else that would enable others to better understand the chosen topic. Finally, the paper should include a discussion of how the topic is relevant within contemporary society and pose questions or topics for further research. Topics chosen must be different from that covered in class assignments– therefore, you may not write on pro-poor tourism. Suggested topical areas: Climate change and shifting coastlines Food, agriculture, livestock, aquaculture Human trafficking Invasive biological species Oil spill on natural habitats Public transportation Saharan desertification Ski resorts and the cultural, economic and environmental landscape Water insecurity
