    Arctic Tourism: Realities & Possibilities2014Ingår i: Arctic Yearbook 2014: Scholarly Articles, Section II: Regional Economy & Properity / [ed] Dr. Lassi Heininen, Arctic Portal , 2014, s. 1-17Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper addresses human capital in the Arctic in relation to tourism. More specifically, with an ever-increasing number oftourists recognizing the attractiveness of the Arctic, tour companies are increasingly recognizing the opportunities. The media(typically southern media) sells the image, either before or after the tourists arrive, and communities are often left to deal with therepercussions – whether those are social, economic, environmental, or the like. Many of the repercussions are negative; however,even when perceived as positive they can create tensions within small communities and showcase a variety of capacity issues.This paper focuses on the realities and possibilities of tourism in the Arctic. It offers an up-to-date descriptive overview of tourismnumbers and valuations. In addition, ‘realities’ also focuses on the current suite of challenges and ‘possibilities’ addresses criticalquestions that need to be asked as tourism grows. We are in an uncertain age and academic critique of the Arctic tourismphenomenon is growing as quickly as the numbers. This paper is almost fully circumpolar in outlook, written by individuals fromthose jurisdictions, and aims to intersect with other sectors active in the Arctic.

    Circumpolar Indigenous Tourism and Empowerment in a Context of Russian Arctic Territories2012Ingår i: 3rd Conference of the International Polar Tourism Research Network (IPTRN) From talk to action: How tourism is changing the Polar Regions, Nainm Nunatsiavut (Northern Labrador), Canada, 2012Konferensbidrag (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    The Russian Arctic territory is an area which significantly influences Russian socio-economic development. It is considered as an important element for the future development of the whole nation, with the hope to utilise its natural wealth discovered during the last decades. Moreover, these considerations are now placed into the context of the faith of the indigenous people inhabiting this vast territory. In contemporary society, both national and regional policies have been influenced in an effort to find alternative ways of engaging the indigenous people in the process of development. This paper aims to identify and analyse the issues influencing process of general tourism development in the Russian Arctic. This done by the re-evaluation of regional tourism planning process and existing products, as well as the marketing strategies of the eight administrative units of the territory of the Russian Arctic, including Murmansk, Arkhangelsk (Nenets Autonomous Okrug) and Tumen oblasts (Jamal-Nenets Okrug), Krasnoyarsk Krai (Taymyr Dolgano-Nenets municipal rayon), Sakha Republic, Chukotka autonomous okrug. Although these territories possess unique natural and cultural characteristics suitable for the development of unique tourism products this potential is either not utilised or only partly utilised. It is possible to identify clear losers as well as the leaders in this process. This situation is often dependent on the level of the engagement of the public organisations, as well as private companies within the natural resource extraction sector. It is an important condition for a successful implementation of the desired tourism development, as well as for the indigenous tourism product development.

    Cruise tourism development on the territory of Russian Arctic National Park: realities and future possibilities2014Konferensbidrag (Övrig (populärvetenskap, debatt, mm))
    Abstract [en]

    Problems and future potentials for the further development of cruise tourism development on the territory of National Park 'Russian Arctic' is a focus for the keynote speech. Current development of the cruise ship tourism in Northwestern Russia (Murmansk and Arkhangelsk regions) is characterized by a great level of institutional instability. Number of controlling authorities on state and regional level has grown dramatically over the past decade during the 2000s. However, the stakeholders on the local and regional level proved to be active and flexible agents of change which contributes to the valuable process of knowledge transfer among the destinations, for example Svalbard and National Park ‘Russian Arctic’. AECOS’s led project concerning the development of site-specific guidelines initiated several years ago resulted in the set of guidelines applied onto the sites on Franz Josef Land. These initiatives along with other actions taken by local and regional authorities of both Arkhangelsk and Murmansk regions towards further development of cruise tourism allow for careful optimism.

    Lessons learned: uses of mining and other cultural heritage in the Arctic. Voices from Russian settlements on Svalbard2018Ingår i: Creative forces in the Polar regions: cultures, economies, innovation and change in tourism, 2018Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Focus of this study is the current stage of the tourism development of two Russian settlements on Svalbard – Barentsburg and Pyramiden. This study analyses the process of recent tourism development and investigating the settings behind the narratives used in the production of tourism experiences on the archipelago. How mining past and the history of Russian presence are interwoven into the tourism activities and what are they based on? How the stakeholders involved in the current stage of tourism development look upon the motives behind it and justifications of the Russian presence on Svalbard, what are the possible futures of this development? Study utilises mixed-method approach combining analysis of existing published material and extensive fieldwork experience resulting in participant observations and interviews with the relevant stakeholders.

    No place left?: Realities of the indigenous tourism development in the Arctic Russia2015Konferensbidrag (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Tourism experiences based on the culture and traditional lifestyle of the indigenous people of Russian Arctic regions promoted more frequently nowadays. Nenets Autonomous okrug, northwestern Russian Arctic territory is one of the examples where this development were underway since the beginning of 2000s. Official version of this development often highlights role of tourism development not only in preservation of Nenets heritage, but also as a mean of modern reinterpretations and revitalization of ancient traditions and practices. How accurately the official version of the role played by tourism corresponds to the reality in Nenets? What are the preconditions for this development and how well the members of the indigenous community incorporated into the process of tourism development and planning? The chapter reviews the results from the participant observations, key informant interviews and content analysis of the published material conducted under the period 2011-2014 on the territory of the okrug. Realities of the development of the indigenous tourism show a clear disparity between the actions undertaken by regional authorities and local entrepreneurs utilizing indigeneity in their tourism operations. Almost a decade of development in tourism sector did not result a development of operational system for participatory decision-making, quality assurance or safety of tourism operations, but characterized predominantly by the ad-hoc arrangements connected to the shifts in regional government or decisions taken by central government in Moscow. It becomes clear that development of alternative paths for indigenous development given a low priority, as region's economic base is dominated by oil and gas exploration.​

    Processes of reinterpretation of mining heritage: the case of Bergslagen, Sweden2017Ingår i: Almatourism, ISSN 2036-5195, Vol. 8, nr 7, s. 107-123Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [ru]

    Mining heritage is often used as a powerful tool in maintaining a sense of place and national identity and Sweden is not different in this respect. Another important underlying motive for the revival of the mining past is an opportunity of the economic revitalisation of the space marked by the deindustrialisation process. The aim of this paper is to investigate how the mining heritage is interpreted and used for the goals of tourism destination development based on the five provinces in the middle part of Sweden – area called Bergslagen. The first decade of 2000s was characterised by the prevailing top-down approach to the regeneration process of mining landscape of Bergslagen, as it was led by the cultural elite. Thus, resulting in the absence of a diverse and innovative thinking in terms of touristic development of these destinations. Municipalities in the region ended up with the multiple mining sites trying to attract visitors with the similar types of experiences based on limited representations of regional mining heritage. Furthermore, it is suggested that enhancing communication between managers of the mining sites and other tourism experiences would help to improve visitation. Additionally, the alternative representations of the heritage may allow for a wider representation of local people, as well as an awareness of local or regional heritage of Bergslagen.

    Projecting Images: Marketing in the case of two World Heritage Sites in Sweden2010Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Cultural tourism is increasingly used as a tool for the development within the medium-sized municipalities in Sweden. The World Heritage Status is looked upon as a quality stamp giving considerable destination development possibilities. Most of the Swedish World Heritage sites were accepted on the UNESCO’s World Heritage List during a very short period of time in the 1990s. Since then the ambitions of the local actors were strong and resulted in five additional nominations during the beginning of the 2000s. Several other destinations are on the tentative list of properties that could be considered and nominated by the Convention in the future. Previous studies have indicated that managing cultural sites has not always being an easy task. The institutions which role lies in promoting the development on the local arena could in fact become an obstacle. These different interest groups involved in the formation of the heritage make it difficult to form a joint promotion strategy covering a wider audience of users. Cultural or heritage tourism is an example of niche tourism, which is highly specialised and targeting only a certain limited group. Marketing strategies adopted by World Heritage Sites help to identify and support this notion adopted by destinations. This study helps to gain a deeper understanding in how these different heritage sites are promoted to the specific interest group. Are these promotional strategies inclusive or exclusive? The research is based on the text analysis of the marketing and information material on the Internet from the 14 existing World Heritage sites in Sweden. There were some 700 pages of written material analysed in total. The texts were organised into groups related to place description and tourist activities, for example shopping, and dining. The preliminary results support the notion of the tourism industry adjusting itself towards more sophisticated and experienced travellers in their search for small-scale and unique activities. Heritage tourism is a good example of a small-scale niche product. The heritage for sale has to be presented in the way that is going to fit the new niche which has replaced the conventional industrial type of tourism. In order to maintain tourist flows to the heritage sites, involved actors have to diversify and scale down their business strategies. The concept of a place as being unique or of exceptional value with the help of the World heritage status is going to increase its attraction power. The study material allows for a classification (typology) of the World Heritage Sites according to the use of heritage as it promoted to the tourists.

    Rejuvenation of tourism space: myth or reality?: Looking at the examples from the Russian Arctic Communities2012Konferensbidrag (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Arctic regions are increasingly dominating global debates concerning the range of effects of the climate changes, especially when it comes to the new possibilities for the natural resource exploitation. Rapid changes in the Arctic open up for a series of discussions connected to the political stability, control and cooperation in this region. At the same time, further exploitation of the considerable natural wealth of the territories of the Russian Arctic calls for a discussion on the role of alternative pathways, especially when it comes to the impacts on the indigenous communities of the region. Tourism activities, if developed, could provide an alternative path for the development of local communities. Central government has recently announced a new development strategy for the Russian North where the sustainable tourism development is named as one of the possible alternative ways for developing marginalised indigenous communities, as well as the part of more open attitude towards foreign visitors in this area. This region is believed to become “an important cultural and economy centre in a Barents region and on the Russian North” already year 2030. However, since the Russian Arctic is facing an increased environmental degradation due to the massive oil and gas exploration operations it is unlikely that a sustainable development of tourism is possible without other sectors of economy following in the same direction. The purpose of this paper is to investigate a current state of the development of the tourism sector in the Nenets autonomous okrug (NAO), as well as to identify primary stakeholders in the context of the tourism development in the region. What are the institutional and political conditions affecting tourism development nowadays? How the system of resource management is organised when it comes to the utilisation and the access to the natural resources, at the same time claimed by other industries? The identification of the primary stakeholders is made through analysis of official documents, as well as web-pages of relevant organisations (governmental, public and private), textual material from daily press sources relevant to the case study are analysed and interpreted. The semi-structured interviews with several actors from different levels of authority will be conducted in order to obtain in-depth insights concerning the present development of the tourism sector. In line with previous research it is possible to conclude that considerable marketing efforts, including investments on basic infrastructure to facilitate tourist flows are necessary in order to fulfil some of the visions towards the role of tourism sector for the Russian Arctic communities. The peculiarities of the highly centralised administrative structure of the Russian resource management system make it highly improbable to ease a burden of the regional and local governmental organisations when it comes to opening up for alternative uses of natural reserves and natural parks by private actors. Rejuvenation of the tourism space in case of NAO is highly questionable due to the strong presence of the hydrocarbon sector in the region and without serious state interventions will remain rather a myth then a reality.

    Territory for brave man: Gendered tourism practices in the Arctic2013Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [ru]

    Освоение и развитие Арктических территорий России неразрывно связано с аспектом первооткрывательства и преодоления. Суровые природные условия северного края всегда как казалось, противоречили самому присутствию здесь женщины. Это становится особенно заметным при знакомстве с обстоятельствами проведения самых известных арктических экспедиций, состоявшихся в советский период освоения Севера. Вот, например, известнейшая эпопея экспедиции на пароходе «Семен Челюскин» (руководитель экспедиции О.Ю. Щмидт, капитан судна В.И.Воронин), перед которой была поставлена задача за одну навигацию пройти Северным морским путём. После гибели затёртого льдами парохода и героического спасения коллектива экспедиции имена челюскинцев стали известны всей стране. Любопытно, что в этом злополучном рейсе принимали участие   и женщины, в том числе и мама первого в мире ребенка, родившегося на пароходе в Карском море в честь которого девочку звали Кариной.

     Интересно оценить состояние современного информационного арктического пространства России по отношению к женщине, в особенности в условиях, когда большинство программ социально-экономического развития заточены на необходимость активного развития туристского сектора. Этот аспект развития индустрии туризма в Арктике, можно сказать, ещё не изучен. Развитие сферы услуг диктует необходимость активного вовлечения женщин в туризм в качестве основного рабочего агента. Однако в условиях Севера, туристические предложения официальных турфирм, явно не стремятся к активному привлечению женщин в качестве своих клиентов. Сознательно создается ли эта ситуация или она является логическим продолжением уже существующих традиций? Доклад, предлагаемый на ваше осуждение, посвящен более подробному описанию этого и ряда других вопросов связанных с общим имиджем Арктических регионов, создаваемым участниками туристической деятельности.

    Tourism development governance in the Russian Arctic: examples from Nenets AO and Sakha Republic2015Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Challenges in the roles played by public and private sector organizations in the sustainable tourism development are identified for two of the Russian Arctic regions: Nenets Autonomous Okrug and Sakha Republic. A review on the existing institutional arrangements is made including the public sector (regional and local levels), private entrepreneurship, local communities and the ways the participatory decision-making process is promoted. The evaluation of the outcomes of the present institutional framework prove to be unbalanced in order to facilitate coordinated tourism development. Furthermore, the issues arising from the unclear institutional setting influencing the creation of an integrative system of tourism distribution channels. This situation weakens the roles played by all stakeholders and gives fewer incentives for the private businesses and local communities to be involved in the tourism development activities.

    Tourism development planning and product development in the context of Russian Arctic territories2013Ingår i: From Talk to Action: How Tourism is Changing the Polar Regions / [ed] Raynald Harvey Lemelin, Patrick Maher and Daniela Ligget, Thunder Bay: Lakehead University, 2013, s. 41-60Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The Russian Arctic territory has a significant influence on Russia’s present socio-economic development. It is considered an important component of Russia’s economic future, which is connected to the utilisation of the natural wealth discovered there during the last decades. In addition, the Russian Arctic coast is also expected to become a vital transport route between Europe and Asia. In the outlines of the state policy of Russian Federation in Arctic until 2020, tourism is seen as a tool for the sustainable development of the local communities of the Arctic, which would make it possible to safeguard the indigenous cultural heritage, language and handcrafts. However, the plans concerning the implementation of these specific goals are less detailed. The last few years have been marked by a considerable increase in interest towards tourism development of this area. Furthermore, various stakeholders in this part of Russia have already engaged in this process, which has resulted in increased visitation to the area. This paper aims to identify these stakeholders, as well as to analyse the issues influencing the process of general tourism development in the Russian Arctic. This is achieved by re-evaluating the regional tourism planning processes and existing tourist products/profiles of the seven administrative units of the territory of the Russian Arctic from west to east. These are: Murmansk and Arkhangelsk Oblast (Nenets Autonomous Okrug), Jamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug, Taymyr Dolgano-Nenets Municipal Rayon (Krasnoyarsk Krai), Sakha Republic, and Chukotka Autonomous Okrug.Although these territories possess unique natural and cultural characteristics that are suitable for the development of distinctive tourism products, this potential has either not been utilised or has been under-utilised. The analysis identified the clear losers and the leaders in this process. The situation often depends on the level of the engagement of the public administration, cooperation among the tourism providers, as well as private companies within the natural resource extraction sector. The system of integrated planning within the tourism sector, as well as deepening collaboration among the involved stakeholders are important conditions for a successful implementation of the desired tourism development, especially when it comes to indigenous tourism product development.

    Tourism in mining areas of northern Sweden: land of possibilities or continuous struggle?2018Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The northernmost Swedish province of Norbotten has being a subject for boom and bust development cycles of mining industry over several decades. During these times, companies have started massive prospecting campaigns, opened up new mines and re-opened older mines that had been closed for years, and increased production in already existing mines. The mining industry has left its legacy both in the form of immaterial and material remains. This paper focuses on an analysis of the complexities of the present day situation in the mining area of Gällivarre and the adjacent Jokkmokk Municipalities. The problems connected with the postindustrial futures, specifically in reference to the tourism development in this area, are discussed here. Indigenous and non-indigenous tourism entrepreneurs active in these two localities are asked to reflect on their relationship to industrial activities in the area (mining, hydro/wind power production, etc.). Discussion circles around social and cultural barriers between these two groups and the wider society. The stories told by the entrepreneurs represent a range of individual and collectively constructed notions of the present and future development of this area showing a contested vision. Tourism development in the region is showing fragmented/disruptive patterns confined to actions taken by either individual entrepreneurs or small groups that collaborate in the creation of experiences. The issues of every day racism towards Sami population, mistrust towards authorities on one hand and community and cultural identity revival with the help of individual entrepreneurial efforts on the other hand support the contested notion of the current development in the area, heavily influenced by the on-going and future industrial development projects.

    With or without?: Realizing the benefits and risks of the increased tourism flows in the Russian Arctic2015Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Remote areas of the Russian Arctic has being increasingly utilized as pleasure peripheries for the more affluent residents of the Russian urban areas during the past decade of the 2000s. Even previously closed military settlements along the coast of the Barents and Kara Seas are now being open to the tourists. The study is based on the qualitative analysis of the experiences of two tourist companies specializing on the development of the adventure tourism experiences. The participants shared their stories on how the representatives of local political elite are trying to oppose themselves to the changing realities of the tourism development. The arguments put forward by the local residents are, however, in favor of this development claiming that tourists’ visits represent a necessary addition to their ordinary life and as one of the forces for further revitalization of the service provision and facilities that would benefit local community at first place. These opposing views should be taken into account in order to develop a strategy allowing the consolidation of the stakeholders’ viewpoints. Another serious concern, is the absence of the functioning system for the community planning that is both socially and environmentally sensitive. The reliance on nature as the source for the adventure tourism development needs to be reconsidered and adjusted to the pressures of changing climate and realities of every-day life of the Arctic rural communities.

    World Heritage sites as arenas for interpretation and experience production2016Ingår i: Beyond the Great Beauty: Rescaling heritage and tourism / [ed] University of Bolonga, Center for Advanced Studies in Tourism, 2016Konferensbidrag (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    World Heritage sites (WHS) are often regarded as preservation projects aimed at preserving valuable natural and cultural heritage. Lately these sites have been re-evaluated as being important arenas for experience based production. This development raises important questions regarding the commodification process of heritage. Planners need to decide what artefacts, milieus and stories to include and decide how they should be related to each other in a meaningful way. These processes are complex and involve stakeholders from different planning organizations. 

    The study utilises an example from destination development connected to the WHS in Falun, Sweden. Preliminary results show that initial focus in the establishing phase of the WHS has been driven by preservation goals. This focus has often leads to the hampering of commercial initiatives. Experience based products are always dependent on strong interpretation. The interpretation has to be done in a way to connect the visitor in sensuous and imaginative ways to the heritage. This has not been in the innitial  focus of the development in this particular case. One of the reasons for this lies in the criteria set up by UNESCO, which focuses on preservation and education. In a situation where preservation prevail there is often no space left to incorporate tourism industry’s concerns.

    Governance of Expedition Cruise Ship Tourism in the Arctic: A Comparison of the Canadian and Russian Arctic2015Ingår i: Tourism in Marine Environments, ISSN 1544-273X, Vol. 10, nr 3-4, s. 225-240Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Expedition style cruise tourism represents a significant proportion of shipping activity across the Arctic. This article compares and contrasts governance structures that manage the cruise sector from case studies located in the Canadian (Nunavut) and the Russian Arctic (Murmansk and Arkhangelsk regions). Analysis of sources, including interviews with key stakeholders, strategic tourism plans, and an inventory of institutional governance reveals that in both these locations there is no central authority to govern the growth of the industry, no specific cruise or yacht management plans, and no site guidelines for highly visited shore locations (other than in protected areas). The article concludes that under current conditions there are significant barriers to supporting development of the expedition cruise sector in both these Arctic regions.

    Creation and re-creation of mining heritage: lessons from Kiruna in Northern Sweden2011Ingår i: Well-being in Tourism and Recreation : Book of Abstracts, Rovaniemi: University of Lapland , 2011Konferensbidrag (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Several conflict arenas and differing views concerning the future development of tourism in Kiruna are discussed in this study. The necessity of relocation of parts of the town centre has attracted a considerable media attention and has been utilized to further strengthen the image of Kiruna as a unique destination, especially among international visitors. Parallel to this rather speculative development a local cultural organisation asks for careful considerations regarding preservation of heritage and buildings that symbolises the history of the mine. The study is based on interviews with principle stakeholders together with an analysis of the debate on mining heritage and tourism development in local, regional and national press between the years 2000-2010.

    Gender relations in tourism in the Russian arctic: representations and practices2014Ingår i: Conferences at Copenhagen Business School, 23rd Nordic Symposium on Tourism and Hospitality Research: Value of Tourism for Destination, Copenhagen, 2014Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Remote territories of the Russian Arctic have historically been subject to conquest and exploration and depicted as a periphery for resource extraction and male adventures. Tourism has recently been introduced as an alternative source of income for indigenous groups that previously lived solely on reindeer herding. However, the tourism sector is still very small and under-developed in the area despite public policies and different national and regional projects to promote tourism. This study analyses how tourism operations in Northwestern Russia use representations of the Arctic and of gender identities in the production and promotion of tourism experiences. The representation and practices of nature- and indigenous tourism operations studied through participant observations made during field trips to the territories of Nenets Autonomous Okrug. The observations complemented with tourism stakeholders’ interviews and content analysis of promotional material from the tourism businesses in the area. The purpose of the study is to get an understanding of the content and meaning of representations and practices of tourism in the Russian Arctic.

    We analyse the cultural constructions of places shaped by gendered representations of people and indigenous culture. In what ways are indigenous men and women depicted and what types of place identities are constructed through representations and practices in tourism operations?  We follow Roy (1997) and Edensor (2000) allowing the hosts to speak and become agents in the portrayal of the contemporary tourist practices accommodating the demands of modern tourists. We find that there is a strict gender division of tasks and responsibilities within tourism in the case study area. Service operations in villages and in this region predominantly employ women (hotels, restaurants, shops, and so on); however, out in the tundra, men predominate in high status service functions such as guides within hunting and fishing trips. The results show that the promotion and tourism offers in the area strengthening the notion of (re)production of colonial representations and experiences of the place and its peoples as exotic and the “Other”. The marketing of the area stresses the possibilities to explore unspoilt and remote areas (“snowscapes”). The tourism practices in the Russian Arctic are focused on physical endurance and masculine coded activities and behaviour.

    Representations and uses of indigenous areas in tourism experiences in the Russian Arctic2017Ingår i: Polar Geography, ISSN 1088-937X, E-ISSN 1939-0513, Vol. 40, nr 2, s. 85-101Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper compares the representation of indigenous tourism experiences in advertisement materials with representations gathered from site visits and tourism sector interviews in the Nenets Autonomous Okrug (NAO) in northern Russia. The study shows that a majority of the visual images and text used for marketing of the area construct a picture of an indigenous people living ‘in harmony’ with nature, representing a romanticized and historical image of indigenous communities. In contrast with these marketing images, large variations exist in everyday practices and among the numerous practical considerations related to the recent and limited development of tourism in the NAO.

    Short-circuiting cruise tourism practices along the Russian Barents Sea coast?: The case of Arkhangelsk2018Ingår i: Current Issues in Tourism, ISSN 1368-3500, E-ISSN 1747-7603, Vol. 21, nr 4, s. 440-454Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The growth and popularity of polar cruise tourism in the Arctic region have raised expectations about the opportunities in this part of the world. However, the existing academic literature has never ventured further than to recall these expectations and opportunities, which means that there is hardly any insight into what is actually happening in Russian Arctic cruise tourism. This paper aims to provide a practice-based perspective with a special focus on performed and integrated practices in the production of cruise tourism along the Russian Barents Sea coast. Semi-structured interviews with key actors involved in the production of cruise tourism serve as the main source of information along with observations made during fieldwork in the Arkhangelsk region. Cruise tourism practices are facing a number of challenges in their reproduction and lack both consistency and regularity. The practice-based perspective helps to reveal how groups of actors collectively produce activities and itineraries for cruise tourists despite the structural constraints. Moreover, the paper shows how local private entrepreneurs are actively trying to configure and connect the constituting cruise tourism practices.

    Supporting tourism entrepreneurship in Sami areas: Financial and political instruments in Norway and Sweden2018Ingår i: Tourism Implications and Dilemmas, 2018Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Despite institutional efforts to address growth in tourism business in Sami area, they are still marked by weak entrepreneurship and lack of business-research collaboration for stimulating creative and innovative industrial processes. Our paper focus on the economic and political framework for entrepreneurship in the context of Sami areas in Norway and Sweden. We describe this framework and ask to what extent national financial instruments enhance or restrain scope of entrepreneurship in Sami areas. Further, we investigate how key actors involved in supporting entrepreneurship on the state, regional and local level manage (or fail) to fill the gap between national financial instruments and needs in Sami areas. One important question is; can the scope of the financial instruments and policy towards entrepreneurship in Sami Areas be changed to better catch the needs of the business, if so how? Is it possible to develop a model to encompass local place and culture specific needs of the Sami people and still fit the national policy of entrepreneurship? To address this question, we have use data obtained from a survey among applicants for entrepreneurial support (financial, networking and competence) to the Norwegian Sami parliament. Further, we have made personal interviews key individuals designing financial and supportive instruments for this particular target group, and finally interviewed Sami tourism entrepreneurs. The Sami entrepreneurs are an important source of information, because their personal knowledge as users of the financial system. Therefore, we have establish a dialogue with Sami entrepreneurs involved in our study. Involving Sami entrepreneurs more actively in research that include indigenous perspectives, can contribute to address the challenges of decolonized research within political science. Further, we have studied policy documents of the Sami Parliament in Norway and Sweden and statutes for other financial and supportive institutions relevant for entrepreneurship in Sami areas.

    Making Russian arctic accessible for tourists: analysis of the institutional barriers2014Ingår i: Polar Geography, ISSN 1088-937X, E-ISSN 1939-0513, Vol. 37, nr 2, s. 137-156Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Recent improvements in nature protection in the European territory of Russia’s Arctic islands and archipelagoes – such as the creation of the Russian Arctic National Park – have also resulted in an increase in visitation to this area. This study uses the Key Informants’ Technique to analyze Russian tourism planning and development of this territory since 2011. The majority of the principle stakeholders identified for this study agreed that these areas have great potential for tourism development and are already attracting both foreign and Russian tourists. At the same time, impediments to foreign cruise companies and individual travelers spell rather gloomy prospects for further destination development in the area. The contradictions of the current stage of tourism development support the assumption that Russia’s territorial interests still prevail. Tourism development appears to be a top-down enterprise, organized by less experienced tourism developers and bureaucrats and without consideration for the long-term perspective.

    Nature-based tourism, conservation and institutional governance: a case study from the Russian Arctic2016Ingår i: The Polar Journal, ISSN 2154-896X, E-ISSN 2154-8978, Vol. 6, nr 1, s. 112-130Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper analyses current institutional arrangements connected to the protection of natural resources in developing nature-based tourism in the territories of the north-western part of the Russian Arctic. Examples from two regions, the Arkhangelsk Oblast and the Nenets Autonomous Okrug, illustrate how the different methods of nature conservation – national parks and nature reserves – are promoting or constraining the development of nature-based tourism activities. The study is based on 14 semi-structured interviews with representatives from state organisations as well as representatives from non-governmental organisations, and reviews of planning and policy documents. This paper discusses the factors shaping present institutional arrangements connected to environmental protection and the capability to establish planning schemes. The agencies responsible for nature-based tourism development often suffer from rudimentary tourism planning, inadequate tourism infrastructure and a lack of service management skills. In addition, there is evidence that mistrust and a lack of collaboration among governmental agencies and private stakeholders also limit development opportunities. Despite the difficulties experienced by authorities responsible for the measures of conservation and nature protection in the remote Arctic territories (Nenetsky State Nature Reserve), pockets of success are identifiable (e.g. Kenozersky National Park). The reality of the nature conservation efforts and the ability to develop nature-based activities is heavily dependent on individual engagement and interpersonal collaboration, which makes the best practices non-transferable to other contexts. So far, the current system of institutional governance limits the possibilities to increase the economic impact of nature-based tourism in the Russian Arctic.

    The emerging global tourism geography: an environmental sustainability perspective2012Ingår i: Sustainability, ISSN 2071-1050, E-ISSN 2071-1050, Vol. 4, nr 1, s. 42-71Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The current development of tourism is environmentally unsustainable. Specifically, tourism’s contribution to climate change is increasing while other sectors are reducing their greenhouse gas emissions. This paper has two goals: reveal the main structural cause for tourism’s emission growth and show the consequences thereof for (mitigation) policies. It is reasoned that the main cause for tourism’s strong emission growth is the time-space expansion of global tourism behavior. Contemporary tourism theory and geography fail to clearly describe this geographical development, making it difficult to understand this expansion and develop effective policies to mitigate environmental impacts. Therefore, this paper explores some elements of a ‘new tourism geography’ and shows how this may help to better understand the causes of the environmentally unsustainable development of tourism with respect to climate change and devise mitigation policies.

    Restaurant location in Hamilton, New Zealand: clustering patterns from 1996 to 20082012Ingår i: International Journal of Contemporary Hospitality Management, ISSN 0959-6119, E-ISSN 1757-1049, Vol. 24, nr 3, s. 430-450Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The purpose of this study is to assess the evolution of restaurant locations in the city of Hamilton over a 12-year period (1996 to 2008) using GIS techniques. Retail theories such as central place, spatial interaction and principle of minimum differentiation are applied to the restaurant setting.

    Design/methodology/approach: A database of restaurants was compiled using the NZ yellow

    pages and contained 981 entries that consisted mainly of location addresses and types of cuisine. This paper focuses on locational patterns only.

    Findings: A process of geo-coding and clustering enabled the identification of two clustering

    periods over 12 years for city restaurants, indicating locational patterns of agglomeration within a short walking distance of the CBD and spill over effects to the north of the city.

    Research limitations/implications: The data do not allow statistical analysis of the variables

    causing the clustering but offer a visual description of the evolution. Explanations are offered on the possible planning regimes, retail provision and population changes that may explain this evolution.

    Practical implications: The findings allow identification of land use patterns in Hamilton city and potential areas where new restaurants could be developed. Also, the usefulness of geo-coded data in identifying clustering effects is highlighted.

    Originality/value: Existing location studies relate mostly to site selection criteria in the retailing industry while few have considered the evolution of restaurant locations in a specific geographic area.

    This paper offers a case study of Hamilton city and highlights the usefulness of GIS techniques in understanding locational patterns.

    Sri Lanka as a potential tourism destination: Pre-visitation images of Sri Lanka among Swedish youth and student travelers2015Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    Youth travel is one of the fastest growing market niches in the world. The social, cultural and economic value of these travels are increasing rapidly while distinctive impacts of youth travel have much broader relevance to global tourism than ever before. Thus, many organisations increasingly taking more active role in developing youth travel policies, products and promotional campaigns. According to many scholars, youth travellers are first time travellers and highly depend on the perceived image when choosing a holiday destination. However there have been relatively less studies done on this market segment nor many studies has been focused on pre-visitation images of youth travellers before they embark on a trip. Sri Lanka is emerging as a new tourism destination in Swedish market after decades of political and ethnic unrest. Therefore, this thesis aims to examine and identify the secondary images (pre-visitation) of Sri Lanka as a tourism destination as it exists in the Swedish youth and student market.The pre-visitation (secondary) images of Sri Lanka as perceived by Swedish youth and students were evaluated through quantitative primary research using both close and open-ended questions. Results suggests that Swedish youth and students recognise Sri Lanka in terms of cultural heritage, natural attractions, climate and local hospitality as positive while attributes such as safety, accommodation, prices and transport system to be negative aspects of Sri Lankan image. Moreover the results clearly showed that Swedish youth and Students have a very limited knowledge about Sri Lanka’s destination attributes.

    The Vasaloppet as transformative nature sport event: Does the experience of participating in nature sport events influences sustainable practices?2018Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (magisterexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    The research for the master thesis was about the influence the participation in sport events taking place in nature has on sustainable behaviour of the individual. Although there is an understanding of what sustainability means in literature, each person defines its means for her or himself and acts differently. As there is not much research that looks at sustainability as something that can be experienced, this paper is an attempt to find out. Therefore, the aim of this thesis is to identify how a participant of sport events, taking place in nature, is influenced by the experiences during the different stages of the event, including preparation, racing, and the time afterwards. As a theoretical concept for a change through experience transformation was chosen. As case for such an event the Vasaloppet 2018 was chosen. As there is a large variety of races during the events, the participation in the context of research includes individuals that join the full 90-kilometres distances during daytime. As a result, the sample is derived from the Vasaloppet (main run), and open spår (open trail).

    The concepts derived from literature encompass sustainability in relation with organisations, using the triple bottom line. In this context, the sustainability of events is conceptualized in conjunction with the ideas of people, planet and profit. After exploring concepts that are important on an organisational level, the three levels of sustainability by Cavagnaro and Curiel (2012) was used to get a better understanding of the role of the individual. Further concepts are serious leisure and consumption, as the participant of an event, for this research, is also someone who consumes products and services in relation to performing serious leisure. Also, the motivations to participate are examined. Additional, the meaning of experiences and possible experiences of events were elaborated. Finally, the concept of transformation for this paper were discovered.

    To reach the aim of the research a qualitative research approach, based on social constructivism was taken. The research was conducted by having interviews with six participants of the 2018 Vasaloppet. The obtained data was analysed by means of an inductive thematic analysis, creating themes from what was said by the interviewees.

    The key findings discussed are their understanding of individual and organisational sustainability, as well as transport, in the context of the Vasaloppet experience. Further a chapter about experiences that made the interviewees thinking about issues that might cause transformation is added. A chapter about actual found transformational experiences is added in closing. Eventually a reflection on the research process is given, before concluding the thesis.

    Motivations and experiences of international students working as volunteers in a sport event: A case study of the Nordic ski world championship in Falun 20152015Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    Since the last decades, volunteering plays an important role in mega sport events, like

    the Olympics or FIFA World cups. However, the need of volunteers is not influenced by the

    size or notability of the event as most likely no event has the budget to run while paying every

    person involved. Especially students are a great market for the volunteer job as they are young

    and more flexible in time. Including international students, who live in the area of the event,

    in event volunteering, can lead to many advantages for the students but also for the

    organization and the local community. This study researches the motivations and perceptions

    of international students becoming volunteers at sport events and which benefits these

    volunteers have themselves, but also on the event organization and host community, by using

    the case study of the FIS Nordic Ski World Championship in Falun 2015. Due to the

    outcomes of in-depth interviews, which were held with participating international students,

    the study concludes that all motivational factors mentioned in the researched literature can

    also be applied on the international students during Falun 2015. Where in the case of the

    international students, especially the benefits are a main motivation for the participation. By

    looking at the outcome, it can be said that international students are a great advantage for

    event organizations, as they offer good language and a variety of social and working skills for

    an international event and are highly motivated to get the best mental souvenir possible.

    Besides that, the local community, which hosts these students during their stay, profits from

    these volunteers as they get a chance to get to know these students and introduce them into

    the host culture.

    Abstract [en]

    In this chapter, our focus is on issues faced when developing tourism in a region located in and on the fringe. To illustrate our discussion we use the Dalarna region in southern central Sweden as an example. This region is perceived by many of those involved in tourism development as a homogenous entity. We suggest that, at least in part, this is a representation of Dalarna as the ‘Heart of Sweden’, situated in a mythologised past. In order to problematize current thinking we make use of two specific cases, namely ski resort development in the Malung-Sälen municipality in the north-west of the region and a rural festival focused on locally produced food and drink in the southern part of the region. Dalarna is represented as an imagined idyll, a land of heroic deeds and iconic images. As such, the region acts as more than merely a geographic fringe space, with its proximity to Stockholm. It also works as a kind of chronological fringe, a space between past and present. However, we suggest that late modernity disrupts the imagined idyll used by tourism developers. Dalarna is no less a modern, complex space as other regions in Sweden. It is the reality and desires of local people living in as an evolving and lived-in space that needs to be considered. Our discussion and examples illustrate the complexities that need to be taken into account to ensure sustainable, meaningful and most importantly inclusive tourism development.

    Determinants of choosing vacation accommodation: among Students at Högskolan Dalarna2015Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    The research objective of the study is to offer a tentative survey for future, which

    could figure out determinants of choosing vacation accommodation of Students at

    Högskolan Dalarna. Under the research objective, this research focuses on two

    research questions. The first research question is to figure out the choosing of hotels

    by students at Högskolan Dalarna in their travelling. The following research question

    is to identify key factors that could influence the choosing of vacation accommodation

    of students at Högskolan Dalarna. After literature review regarding consumer decision

    making include the concepts of consumer decision making, consumer decision

    making in the hotel industry, consumer preference and consumer satisfaction, and the

    consumer decision making framework, this research carries out a questionnaire which

    could be used for further research. The questionnaire includes the investigation of

    demographic information of the participators, their consuming behaviors during their

    travelling, and items that might exert significant influences on their choosing of

    vacation accommodation during their travelling. Determinants of choosing vacation

    accommodation are identified as include four aspects: socio-economic influences,

    cultural influences, family influences, and reference group influence via the consumer

    decision making process of students at Högskolan Dalarna during their travelling. The

    study could lay a good foundation for further researches, focusing on finding out

    determinants of choosing vacation accommodation by students at Högskolan Dalarna.

    Who owns this land?2013Konferensbidrag (Övrig (populärvetenskap, debatt, mm))
    Abstract [en]

    In the Arctic region there is plenty of space for various activities. The Arctic region is increasingly interesting from many perspectives on different geographical levels. Exploitation of natural resources such as minerals, oil, gas and timber has over the last decades put Arctic region in focus since the global warming increases the accessibility to the Arctic but also due to the fact that the region is rich of unexploited natural resources. This development challenges or threatens to environment, local population and indigenous populations rights. It also challenges the governance of the Arctic region. In the Nordic countries local governance is a natural part of the political system. Local governance includes local population and local economic interest in the governance and planning of the local and regional level. The focus on the arctic regions also involves geopolitical interests (by security reason but also by trade reason and natural resources). This means that in many cases supranational geopolitical and or global resource interests coincide with local interests and environmental interest. This study is focused on how these interests on different geographical levels relates to each other on a specific location. The location is here Franz Josephs Land in the very far north Arctic. The study focuses three main interests. International tourism in the area, environmental issues, interests and legal framework in Franz Josephs Land, and the geopolitical interest of Franz Josephs land. The latter  relates both the strategic localization of the study area but also the proximity to natural resources.

    Contrasting views on co-management of indigenous natural and cultural heritage – Case of Laponia World Heritage site, Sweden2020Ingår i: Polar Record, s. 1-11Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses the evaluation of the management of the Laponia World Heritage site (Laponia WHS) in northern Sweden. After inscription on the World Heritage list in 1996, difficulties emerged in establishing a common understanding about the involvement of various stakeholders into the site’s management model, the key point of contention being the influence of the representatives from indigenous Sami people and how that should be organised. In 2011, the management organisation led by Laponiatjuottjudus (the Sami name for the Laponia WHS management organisation) was established and implemented. This organisation gave Sami representatives a majority in the Laponia steering board and the position as chairperson in the board. This marked a remarkable shift in the Swedish national management system of land in not only handing over a state decision-making power to the local level but also to representatives of the indigenous population. The evaluation of the management model presented by Laponiatjuottjudus resulted in a number of responses from several stakeholders participating in a consultation process. These responses, from stakeholders with conflicting positions in relation to the issue described above, are the subject of this study. The analysis of these data collected reveals the existence of four major approaches or narratives to the Laponia WHS, with narratives connected to nature, the indigenous population and local governance, the economic effects of the existing system, and lastly the local community narrative. The study concludes that present management of Laponia WHS, the Laponiatjuottjudus, is a unique attempt to widen the management and planning process that partly interferes with the existing national planning model. At the same time, the analysis reveals that the Sami demands for influence over land management in the north still faces major challenges connected to its colonial legacy.

    Regional “Innovation Systems” vis-à-vis “Innovation Support Systems" – Is clarification needed?2020Ingår i: Industry and Higher EducationArtikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    How language is used has political implications as well as communicational consequences. Regional development, using means of systematic support for innovation, is a widespread phenomenon globally that also includes numerous political ambitions and implications. This article argues that ambiguities regarding the use of terms such as ‘innovation system’ and ‘innovation support system’ need to be clarified to improve communication in this field, as well as to reveal underlying political ideas on how systematic support for innovation should be carried out, by drawing on examples from studies of regional systems. Such ambiguities contribute significantly to the often-mentioned lack of involvement and engagement in regional development on the part of higher education institutions and academics. Examining key terms and concepts of this discourse, in the interests of promoting a common and stringent use of terminology, helps to illuminate whether the desired academic involvement in innovation processes relates to ideation, implementation and commercialization, or to support for processes through the contribution of knowledge and expertise.

    The role of optimized cookstove technology in improving rural Rwandan household management2015Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    This study is based on the results from fieldwork conducted in November of 2014 in

    the Gasabo and Kamonyi districts of Rwanda and aims to provide a cross-sectional

    insight into the potential of optimized cookstove technology for rural Rwandan

    households. The economic benefits of a transition into more sustainable cookstove

    practices are recognized, by examining links between farming structures, waste

    management and energy use. Rwanda confronts many challenges in the face of

    climate change and increasing land pressure, which go hand in hand with energy

    efficiency. In order to tackle the problems related to deforestation, land degradation

    and loss of soil fertility, key factors, such as the use of cookstoves, must be identified

    and adapted. The use of gasifier cookstoves can for example produce biochar, which

    when used as a soil amendment, can sequester carbon, improve soil biology and

    increase agricultural productivity.

    Fieldwork results show that current cooking practices in the Gasabo and Kamonyi

    districts do not enable efficient use of fuel. More than half of the farms that were

    interviewed bought their firewood supplies, although functioning agroforestry

    systems were observed on most of the farms. Food and crop waste was managed

    through composts and mulching to cycle nutrients, and all farms fertilized their crops

    with cow dung. Nonetheless, ever-increasing use of heavier fertilization was regarded

    as a requirement to achieve anticipated crop yields.

    Furthermore, optimized cookstove technology, such as the TLUD, the Philips Stove,

    Biogas and Solar stoves are examined to discuss their economical suitability for rural

    Rwandan households based on the criteria; fuel efficiency, time efficiency, household

    air pollution levels and added benefits such as production of biochar in the case of

    gasifier stoves or fertilizer from the biogas digester.

    A new life in the mountains: changing lifestyles among in-migrants to Wanaka, New Zealand2011Ingår i: Recreation and Society in Africa, Asia and Latin America, ISSN 19167873, Vol. 2, nr 1, s. 35-50Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Mountainous areas with a high dependency on its tourism industry are often relatively small and remote. But some of these areas have faced a population increase due to large in-migration;Wanaka in New Zealand’s Southern Alps is one example. This paper is studying the migration motivations of a few individuals that have moved to Wanaka and how they started to feel like part of their new community. The meaning of the place is important for these newcomers. The results of the study indicate that there is a strong link between the community and the lifestyle that in-migrants are seeking. It also highlights the importance for in-migrants to be a part of the social community. Social Clubs, sport clubs and voluntary work are ways of becoming a part of a social network.

    Community formation and sense of place: Seasonal tourism workers in rural Sweden2017Ingår i: Population, Space and Place, ISSN 1544-8444, E-ISSN 1544-8452, Vol. 23, nr 3, artikel-id UNSP e2018Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Seasonal tourism workers in the Swedish mountains can be conceptualised as members of occupational communities. For members of such a community, the dual relationship between the job and other members are important. However, a place perspective might be fruitful, as place amenities are expected drivers of job acceptance. By studying seasonal workers' relation to place, through the lens of their ‘membership’ of an occupational community, it is possible to capture both the individual sense of place and the group's shared sense of place. The former is highly important, as social relations among the workers are particularly significant. In this study, the conceptual framework of occupational communities is modified to better suit temporary and mobile workers in amenity-rich rural areas. The overall aim of this paper is to investigate how seasonal tourism employees can be analysed as an occupational community. Further, it studies the ways in which a particular tourism-related occupational community perceives and connects to its location, as well as the ways in which seasonal tourism workers perceive the role of place and community in their everyday lives and future plans. Hence, this article concludes that members of an occupational community have a dual attachment to place. This type of community could exist and move around without being affected by the geographical place, but the place has affective possibilities influencing the workers, and in an isolated rural place, the community has more space to grow stronger.
