The rising tension: understanding intergroup dynamics between residents and tourists (2018)

Abstract:
This research examines the intergroup relations between residents and tourists, specifically the conditions where conflicts may arise. It addresses an emerging and timely issue facing the Australian society as tourism continues to grow and tourists have diversified. Conflicts may trigger retribution and instability, impacting negatively on community well-being and destination image. Results from 4 experiments will inform resident responses and evidence-based preventative/intervention strategies.
